Koala by Cheryl Ridge

On the road again – Kangaroo Island, SA

I have to tell you – it doesn’t get much better than this for someone who enjoys travelling and photographing Australia’s great outdoors and its native wildlife.

This cute chap is lucky – we were driving along slowly, enjoying the scenery on Kangaroo Island. We stopped to take photos and then usher the Koala off the road. Other critters aren’t so lucky.

We have witnessed not only roadkill on our travels but the distressing sight of cars actually running over helpless creatures.

    And what a healthy looking animal too, I really LOVE this. And what’s worse than people running over animals, as I do think some are simply too frightened to veer for fear of having an accident, are the ones who deliberately veer to HIT an animal. I have seen it happen and I was mortified.
