Dani Soontobgraham: We always stop. Whether it be further up in a safer spot or back a bit, one of us walks to the animal regardless of where it is..
I would like to get an emergency carers licence We’ve directed traffic if need be. If people don’t protect our wildlife then we won’t have much of one left sadly

Gold Coast Pets: I posted this status because a week ago on the way back from Brisbane on the M1 a koala was hit or at least in shock… thankfully someone stopped (safely) & put his blinkers on … because he stopped… I stopped further up the road in the emergency stopping section… ran back… unfortunately the koala went into shock (collapsed/no movement) … and I gave them a spare pillow case (kept in my car for this reason) … someone donated their picnic blanket… and the koala was rushed off to the 24 hour vet. I have to admit that I didn’t hold high hopes for him as shock kills more than injuries do however I take solace in the fact that he wasn’t alone in his last moments and people cared enough to at least try !
