The Louisville Zoo’s new koalas are now on display

By meerna Jun12,2024

You can now say hello to the Louisville Zoo’s newest furry friends. Two new koalas, Dharuk and Telowie, entered the exhibition for the first time on Tuesday. The koalas came to Louisville from the San Diego Zoo and will remain here indefinitely under an agreement with the Australian government. Dharuk and the Telowie live at the foot of Glacier Run in a recently renovated habitat. We’re training some of the Glacier Run keepers at the zoo to be able to deal with them and take care of them and we want to make sure that we’re doing everything we need to do and really honing our skills, like I said, so that first of all we have a really good knowledge of about caring for koalas,” said Jessica Cunningham from the Louisville Zoo. If you plan to see the new furries, zoo officials say they’ll probably be sleeping, but you might catch them munching on eucalyptus leaves. Zoo authorities say koalas sleep about 20 hours a day.
