In late 2012 a healthy female koala and her joey were both hit by a car in Port Macquarie. Sadly the mother did not survive the impact and motorists at the scene found a tiny joey sitting in the gutter on the side of the road crying for her mother. The young joey who was just over one kilo in weight was named Ocean Summer. She was taken into one of the hospital staff's private home to be cared for round the clock. Ocean Summer was highly traumatised by the event and took quite some time to settle down. It turned out that the impact rendered Summer partially blind.
Summer has now grown into a healthy young koala and lives permanently and happily at the Koala Hospital.
