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! ❤😜

Nickname Ginger???

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!!!

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 🤗

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..

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

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 🍼❤️ ...

 

Comment on Facebook

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

How sweet. Just love the work you get the opportunity to do each and every day. Blessings to you and your team...taking such great care with these lovely kiddos..

I may come down and visit you guys. I am truly inspired by your kindness to animals and kindness in general! Lots of love from the states!

WOW! I was in AS last year only to visit this Sanctuary but sadly wasn't Possible cause they explain that I should buy 2 days before.😞 But, I have plans to comeback to the desert and spend more time to meet Roger and your friends! So cute!

P.S. Looks like the chilly mornings have persuaded you to wear long trousers rather than shorts for walking round the Sanctuary!! Very wise! :-) Keep warm! ;-)

Ooo, I had the chance to hold them as an baby kangaroo, so big already, 😍😍

I don't think these two will ever give up their milk

Brrrrr, sounds like you're having cold nights now. It's warm here - and sunny! - during the day but we had quite a thick frost last night!! Keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather stays good here until Sunday as we have our first donkey event of the summer. It's at a beautiful stately home in Wales so should be a lovely day out if rather a long way to go! :-) How old are Milly and Tilly now and do they still go round together? They are so cute <3 Have a great weekend. Lots of love to all xxx

I never realized how much I needed to see daily posts of kangaroos until I started following your page. They are all so adorable and my son loves the videos. ❤️

Ah, the dynamic duo!!! How they have grown! Who doesn’t want a hot beverage on a cold morning?? 😍😍😍😍😍

Looks good from Ireland where it is a glorious warm 16 degrees.

I have loved watching them grow up. It’s lovely to see they are still best friends. 😁💗

O.M.G.- treasure the memories!! Xxxxx

Morning wish I was there with you

Beautiful baby kangaroo ❤💋🍼🍼🍼so cute !
