YOUNG koala, Little Mac, is back in the wild after a sixmonth stint in specialised care Brisbane.

Little Mac was found abandoned on the verandah of a Waterview Heights home in September last year, with Clarence Valley Wildlife Information and Rescue Service (WIRES) called to rescue the koala. Local WIRES koala coordinator Jenifer Brindley said it was decided his best chance of survival was to be transferred to Wildcare in Brisbane, which specialised in infant koala care.

Mrs Brindley and a Brisbane Wildcare member recently released a much larger and micro-chipped Little Mac back into his local habitat at Waterview Heights.

"On the day of release, a great deal of time was spent searching for just the right tree," Mrs Brindley said.

"We wanted to be sure that he would be comfortable and feel safe in the chosen tree, so it was an important decision to get right."
