Orphaned four-month-old koala joey Squeaky is cared for at Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, New South Wales, Australia. He was found whimpering in his mother's pouch after she was struck by a car on the Oxley Highway two weeks ago. He's a very quiet little fella, but he's doing OK, hospital supervisor Cheyne Flanagan said. He just clings to a little sheepskin roll that mimics his mummy.

Best friends at Koala Hospital Port Macquarie. It's the world's only hospital committed to the care of Koalas    This rescued joey called "Ocean Summer" is now in home care with a local volunteer until it's old and strong enough to be released back into the wild.
