In late December 2018 members of the public noticed a small joey curled up next to a tree in a reserve in Port Macquarie. The joey had blood around her neck area, so the Koala Hospital was called to come and pick her up. Once the koala was admitted, Kooloonbung Tasha was found to be infested with ticks and anaemic.
She responded well to the medical treatment, daily fresh leaves and three formula feeds each day which were mixed with pumpkin, sweet corn and apple. Once well enough to be placed in the joey yard at the Koala Hospital she struck up a friendship with Hockey Luna and they always sat close to one another. In August 2019 these two friends were released together.
