Wallaby Rescued Swimming in Coral Sea

Wallaby Rescued Swimming in Coral Sea

While out boating in the Coral Sea off the Gold Coast of Eastern Australia, friendsRyan, Damian, Naomi, Ramone and Katrina noticed a wallaby “swimming for dear life.” Damian immediatelyjumped in to rescue him.

Though wallabies have been known to swim short distances in fresh or brackish water, no one knows how this one made his way out to sea or how long he’d been swimming, but this very fortunate wallaby came gently aboard the boat and was taken into the custody of a wildlife center where heis expected to make a full recovery.

Awwwww.... The poor little guy was exhausted from all that swimming. No wonder he didn't fight the guy getting him in the boat.

I'm glad he got checked out and will recover from his ordeal.
