Today my mum, best friend scarlet and I went to Riddells Creek to drop off puches to Dana. We gave Dana 15 pouches. When we went to dana's house she showed use her two little baby wombats. She had one girl and one boy. When she was taking the wombats out of the Hanging pouch, one of the wombats was not in a pouch, he was sitting inside of the hanging pouch and his sister was in her pouch. They were both so little and so cute.
Hi my name is Scarlet and I am Libby's best friend and when we went to Dana's house I was surprised to see two little baby wombats. it was my first time holding a baby wombat they were so cute. I couldn't believe how small they were. I thought they were the most cutest animals I have ever seen. I wanted to take them home with me.
We then drove to Coopers Animal Rescue in Dales Creek. When we got to Christine's house we saw goats, sheep, chickens, possums, kangaroos and birds every where. There were cockatoo's everywhere- they eat the kangaroo's food. There were even kookaburra's. When we went inside Christine had two little kangaroos sitting by the fire. She showed use two little pinkie joeys in a pouch, a baby wombat, many big kangaroos and wombats. the wombats were my favourite because one of them was called milo and he was crazy. he would run around and jump at you and act like a little puppy dog. He liked my mum and was chasing her lots. I got to hold one of the big wombats and they were heavy. Christine was really nice. She told us many facts and stories about the animals and I think the most saddest story was Coopers because Coopers mum was hit by a car but he was still live. Cooper was only a tiny little joey and Christine bought him in and looked afeter him. Cooper got sick a few times but he still lived until a few weeks ago when Cooper died after eating a wild mushroom. Christine said she was really sad. Christine got a tattoo of Cooper on her sholder. Christine named the rescue group after Cooper when she found him so it is really sad because Cooper started the rescue group.
Hi it's Scarlet, all of the animals we saw were all so cute there were the baby kangaroos, wombats, possums, goats and sheep. My favourite animal was the baby kangaroos because they were so cute and small. I really enjoyed feeding the kangaroos and running away from milo the little wombat. I was surprised when Christine showed use how hard a wombat is when she knocked on it's bottom we could here the sound it made. Christine told use what happened to Cooper a few weeks ago. A few weeks ago cooper died and they got Cooper when he was a tiny baby kangaroo. I thought it was sad when Christine told use what happened to Cooper and how he died just a few weeks ago. But he is the one she can keep working for.
We talked to Christine about doing a few things for shelters like her.
One thing we are doing for Christine is sewing some large hanging pouches and some large normal pouches from 3 blankets that she gave us. Mum is making a template for them- they are very easy to sew but we need someone with an overlocker to do them.
MY MAJOR PROJECT TO HELP SHELTERS
We also talked about things that people could buy from their supermarkets to help wildlife shelters. Christine told us a few things that she uses
I will make up a list over the next few weeks and see what we can do but for now- buying these things and donating them to me or your local shelter would be a great thing to help out.
