Apart from the multiple fires that are ravaging the area, high temperatures are affecting the health and daily life of people…and animals.
Such is the effect, that the temperatures these days are above 40 degrees s and make hydrating an imperative need, both for humans and for, for example, koalas.
Precisely, a copy of this adorable species is the protagonist of this story.
Although this fact was not new, I had seen on more occasions that these animals are placed on the roads, what did result was the reaction of the koala.
“We stopped the bicycles to help the koalas get off the road, since they can be run over by cars, but the koala approached me very quickly, obviously I was very thirsty,” says Heusler.
“While I was taking a drink from our water bottles, he got on my bike. I had never seen a koala move so fast. Usually, they are not animals that mix with people, they stay in trees and people. he admires them from afar. ”
When the koala had drunk from the water bottles of Heusler and his partner, both safely removed the animal from the road. “There is nothing but tragedy in Australia. Everything is burning out of control, ” Heusler laments.
“I hope this episode helps spread what is going on here. Firefighters are the real heroes, not me.”

There were about a dozen cyclists around me watching this (all men) and several commented that it was genuinely the best thing they’ve witnessed. What a truly wonderful experience. Check out my previous posts this morning for explanation. : Please see my “Go Fund Me” page which is on my Instagram profile bio that I have commenced to raise money for the rescue team caring for over 100 sick and injured koalas in Adelaide. @bikebug2019 : #cyclingtips #cycling #roadcycling #roadbike #roadbikelife #lifeonabike #travelbybike #cyclingphotography #cycleshots #rideyourbike #instacycle #veloclub #cyclinglife #fromwhereride #switchbacks #roadslikethese #cyclingpassion #cyclingworld #whenindoubtpedalitout #womenonbikes #womenriders @cyclingtips @veloclub.cc @iamspecialized @iamspecialized_wmn @womenridebikes #rideadelaide #radelaide #adelaide #adelaidehills #southaustralia #koala #koalabear #koalabears #australia
