A spokesman for the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, said: “ Our koalas here are all super important to our crucial conservation breeding program.
“Koalas are estimated to be extinct in the wild by 2050 so we at The Australian Reptile Park are doing what we can to help make sure that doesn’t happen.
“Including the first-ever wild Koala Sanctuary opening at Aussie Ark.
“We want to protect them and keep them safe every way we can, so future generations can see them too.”The heart-warming snaps show the koalas getting together for some good old-fashioned cuddle time in the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, New South Wales, AustraliaCredit: Caters News Agency
