Virtual School Excursion To Australia’s Koala Hospital On World Environment Day

On the occasion of World Environment Day, Australia’s famous vet Dr Chris Brown decided to hold a virtual school excursion named ‘Koala Help’ for kids and adults. The virtual tour was to Australia’s Port Macquarie Koala Hospital (PMKH), which has been a rescue and recovery spot for Koalas affected from the bushfires.

In the video, Dr Chris goes around the hospital and speaks to many volunteers and doctors. We see him chatting with Gaby Rivett, volunteer team leader PMKH, who shows them the nutrition food used for Koala bears. They meanwhile also answer a question from two little girls Naddika and Sama. “How many Koala bears lost their homes in the bushfire?,” ask the girls, to which Gaby replies, “Difficult to count, but we lost 600 alone in the area near the hospital.”

The video talks about Koala wildlife and habitat and how the black summer bushfire in Australia has damaged their lives. It features Australia’s Koala conservation president, who speaks about the damaged Koala habitat and their focus, which is now on rebuilding and creating more space for them to thrive and survive.

As the video moves forward, Dr Chris covers other areas of the hospital and speaks with another volunteer, who has been working there for over a decade. They discuss the health of the rescued Koalas and how bad the fires were for them. 

“What are the Koalas scared of,” asks a 4 ½-year-old girl. To which he replies, “Certain sounds and bushfires.” They also laugh off as they talk about Koalas resentment with bathing.

The 30-minute long video is insightful on effects of climate crisis on wildlife and Koalas along with some adorable and interesting questions from their inquisitive audience aka school kids. 

We like how the video talks about a heavy topic in a light tone, that educators can easily show to their young students and effortlessly teach them about the wildlife and environment.
