Geez reading some of the comments here. Why don't people just spin on to something they don't feel compelled to complain about.

Gussy finally on form. Keep it up big fella.

Gus normally shits me , But he has valid points!

Another thing wrong is him on radio....

The whole show has gone down the toilet. Not worth listening to...

100% on that Maccas drive thru !!!!

Hopefully, he can have a go at himself next week.

What Winter??

Good morning mummy Indi and baby Harry 💕 (yes we’ve named Indi’s baby after watching a special wedding on Saturday 😊😉) ...

 

Comment on Facebook

Lovely little boy! By the way, I think Kangaroos are born ready to be yoga instructors...impressive how his legs and tail are above and over his head. He's really snug in that pouch! ❤😜

It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful kind people can be so loving and compassionate to animals. Every time i see a video or picture of the kangeroos my heart sings and i feel myself smiling. Thank you Brolga and Team for the fantastic job you do. Angela White (UK)

Next baby needs to be called Meghan!!!

Nickname Ginger???

How old are the babies when they are too big to be carried around by the mothers?

Do the mums have milk and are they feeding the babies?

Aren’t kangaroos wonderful?

Love the way Harry pops his head out, and Indi stands up straight to show him off :) <3

Maybe the human Harry will come and visit when in Oz later this year 🤗

He is the best looking Harry I have ever seen 💕

Princess Diana would be very proud she loved Australia so thank you kindly xxxxx

This makes me so happy!!! He looks huge already and both mum and baby are looking very healthy. Love the name too <3 She makes such a great mum. Can't wait to see the 3 of them bouncing around together.

Love the name Harry is so cute Indi is such a great mother 💙😘💙

Harry you have the perfect name!

Awww...nunu pie....I want it to love and care for😍 💕

Good morning, Harry!!! Can’t wait to see you hopping about!!

Oh so beautiful indi and baby harry you make my day and the wedding was beautiful 😍😍

👍🏻 ABBA “ . . . and your name is Harry. How dull it seems are you the hero of my dreams . . . “ 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

I need a nice warm cozy bed that can double as my transportation to work like Harry 😍 Would save so much time

Love the name , take good care of you’re little prince Harry Indi

The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs

We are so happy Julian rescued this darling little orphaned baby kangaroo and gave him a second chance at life. @julian_p_a_s_c_h_e_n (IG)

Julian learned on our tour (see second pic), how to stop and check kangaroos who have been hit by vehicles to see if there is a baby kangaroo who has survived in mums pouch. Julian held baby for 350km and delivered him safely to a wonderful wildlife carer! Baby has been named George.

Often baby survives in mums pouch after being hit by a vehicle because she has very strong muscles in her pouch that keep baby safe.

Is it common in Australia for kangaroos to be hit by cars? In America we have raccoons and skunks, etc.

Oh well done you Julian 💕

So wonderful that Julian had been on one of your wonderful tours and learned how to rescue a baby whose mother had been killed. Well done, Julian! :-) Shows how important it is to check the pouches of any dead kangaroo you see. You never know what you might find inside like this gorgeous little fellow. <3 We've been busy getting the donkeys ready for our event today. Just have to pack everything into the car, load the donks into the trailer and then we're off! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday there. Love to you all xxx

Blessings to you , so sad to think they are killed,

Aww look at that little cutie so glad that George was saved an delivered to u all to take care of him. Thank u Julian for getting this little cutie to a safe place.. Thank u for sharing this little guy with us..

This brings tears ♥️ thanks 🙏 Julian you are a hero. Thanks Chris for educating us. It is a lesson I will never ever forget 😌

Aww hope George is ok bless him 🙏💜🐨

How wonderful thank you Julian!

You’re team is wonderful!!

Love the extra mile times 50 that you people go for the animals. Doesn’t feel like much from here to you, I bet, but you’d be squirming big time under my hug. So... thank you for all of it and then some.

Bitter sweet :/ <3

Thanks, Julian 🙏

For all those fans who love Bradley and have been asking where he is....here he is! 😀 Bradley is getting really big and doesn’t want to go in his pouch anymore. But he still loves a little cuddle and his milk 🍼❤️ ...

I just love all the videos and the pictures u share with us. Plus learning all the information u share about the Kangaroo's I've learned so much so thank u from Kansas

Why are there such long nipples on the bottles? Is it because their face/jaw is so elongated? I know...strange question! 😂

Oh no... anyone else see a big boy sook that is going to be a massive big boy at the sanctuary

Aaaaawwww! 😍😍😍Good to know though that little Bradley won't turn into a pouch potato.😁

Darling Bradley may be too grown up for his pouch now but he sure still loves his milk! <3 How long before he goes to live out in The Sanctuary with his mate, Max? I'm sitting here busily cleaning donkey bridles for Sunday's event. Just wish there weren't so many brass buckles to polish!! :-) Then it's baths for Nell and Cassie tomorrow. At least it's supposed to be hot and sunny so they won't mind. Have a great Saturday. Love to you all xxx

Do the babies stay close to their mothers when it is cold if they are too big for the pouch?

Thank you for sharing Bradley’s videos. Enjoy watching him as he grows

Aw so very adorable !! Aw ld love to do this ! I'm in Canada and we don't have Kangeroos here only at the zoo s
