From First Up, 5:53 am on 24 January 2020

The race is on to save koalas still in the wild on Kangaroo Island. Fire's destroyed almost 80 per cent of the koalas habitat on the island - with hundreds now in the care of the Kangroo Island Wildlife Park Owner Sam Mitchell told First Up's Lydia Batham they usually care for about 700 native animals - of which 10 are koalas - but have been welcoming hundreds of koalas since fire broke out at the beginning of the year.
