  • Short Description
An up-close look at life in a koala rescue center
Koala Hospital kicks off the new 4-book Wildlife Rescue series from Owlkids Books. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and invites readers inside a rescue center that helps them. Inviting photos by award–winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of the animals and the high level of care they receive.

Koala Hospital features a koala rescue center in Australia. It shows why koalas are in danger, how they come to be in the sanctuary, and the process of healing and rehabilitating koalas for return to the wild. Koala Hospital also focuses on the people who work at the rescue center and how they aid the animals.

Other special features include a map showing the rescue center and the koala’s native habitat range, as well as an index, glossary and author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author’s note at the end introduces readers to small-scale ways that even they can help save koalas.

Informational text features: table of contents, photographs with captions.

A portion of the royalties from sales of this book will be donated to the Koala Hospital.

SUZI ESZTERHAS is an award-winning wildlife photographer who is passionate about helping wildlife and has even participated firsthand in the rescue of several animals! Her photographs have been published in over 100 magazine cover and feature stories in publications around the world, including National Geographic Kids, Ranger Rick, and TIME. When not in the field, she lives in Petaluma, California.
