Most adorable koala baby found next to her dead mom rescued

An adorable koala baby was rescued on Friday after found cuddled next to its dead mom in the smoldering bushland on Australia’s Kangaroo Island.

According to Pro_air_vision on Instagram, cinematographer Bill Blair had been filming the devastation on Kangaroo Island after the bushfires when he spotted the baby joey “huddled next to his burnt mummy.”

“That time you are working on Kangaroo Island filming the fire devastation and you come across the cutest baby ever huddled next to his burnt mummy. I picked it up and put it in the care with me and drove to the set up koala hospital on the island. Some 30 mins later and many lap sits in the car, we got there and they said he will  be fine after treatment for burnt feet…

Saving 1 helps…… so many animals have been lost in Australia from these fires …..not this little drop bear,” Blair wrote.

More than a billion animals have been estimated to have been killed in the fire.
