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.

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.
