Koala joey peeks out at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo for the first time

A six-month-old koala joey has started to peek out of its mother’s pouch for the first time at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo.

The very sleepy looking Queensland koala was born in July to mum Alinga and will take another month or two to grow big enough to move onto her back.

As well as being members of a worldwide koala breeding programme, RZSS also supports conservation projects in Australia that help to rehabilitate sick and injured koalas and release them back into the wild.

Please note that Koala Territory opening hours may vary as the new joey settles in.
