The island where orphaned koalas are recovering from devastating Australian bushfires

British woodsman Ray Mears has travelled to Kangaroo Island in south Australia to visit koalas orphaned by the devastating bushfires. More than 600 koalas were brought to the island's Wildlife Park, where a rescue centre was created for the scores of animals orphaned after fires tore through the country. Many of the animals remain seriously injured as they recover from being burned in the wildfires which began in December, but are receiving specialist care to ensure their survival.
