Grey Baby Wallaby

This is at the Saturday market in Nanango. The stall is the Wildlife Wanderers Carers Group and has a stall here, this man is holding a grey baby wallaby taken from a pouch of a dead mother.
The leaflet they hand out says 'Cars are one of the biggest killers of our wildlife, so if you see a dead animal at the side of the road STOP and CHECK to see if there is a baby in the pouch or nearby. ' We gave a donation and wished we could do more.
These people take care of them, keep them warm in pouches at home and then in time perhaps weeks and weeks later dehumanise them... put them back in the wild!
