Ewok Rescue

by Monique Kahya

Catching a koala is tricky; catching Ewok proved to be quite the challenge. The little male koala, named ‘Ewok Pomona’, had been sighted in the trees at the back of the Pomona State School. After Pomona State School posted in Facebook about their visitor, our local Wildcare wildlife rehabber (and Noosa Landcare staffer) Rachel Lyons was notified and a health check was conducted. From the ground, the tell-tale signs of Chlamydia were noticeable and he looked quite skinny. This all happened on International Star Wars Day (May 4th). Combined with his notable sparse hair around the ears, he was aptly named Ewok!
