Julie Willis and Gary Wilson took home sixty kangaroos. Most of them are orphans who lost their parents in the flames of the Australian fires that raged for several months on the Green Continent. See how compassionate spouses take care of their numerous pets and how they take care of very small kangaroos until they get stronger.
Julie and Gary have been running a kangaroo sanctuary for more than 20 years, and now they are rescuing kangaroos, wallabies and possums. The couple estimates that 80% of the animals in the area died due to fires.

Many of the young animals they care for have lost their mothers in the fire.
The mother of one baby wallaby had to be euthanized after a fire in Vitalib, one of the kangaroos lost his mother after she was hit by a car.
The couple built improvised bags imitating the mother's bag so that the orphaned kangaroos would feel safe.
Julie told the local newspaper The Glen Innes Examiner that most of the kangaroos were missing, not so many possums survived.
