Miami Zoo Renames Baby Koala as Tribute to Austraila Wildfires
Meet Hope, the little koala offering up a little bit of good news for a species devastated by Australia's wildfires. Hope was born at Zoo Miami in May, and was originally named Joey. But when the little one emerged from its mother's pouch for the first time recently, the zoo felt we could all use a little more hope. The zoo has also donated $10,000 to the Zoos Victoria Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund to help the estimated 1 billion wild animals affected in Australia.
