Eaton Family's Aussie Adventure
Rosegreen is a site for kangaroos to be released after they have been hand reared. The handreared ones are joeys taken from their mothers pouches on the side of the road after the mothers have been killed by traffic. The couple that hand rear the joeys has up to 20 or so at any one time and they require feeding every 4 hours!! What a commitment. Once old enough they are released on Rosegreen and it happens about every 6 weeks or so and we were lucky enough to be there for a release. Matthew became very attached to a wallaroo called Rowdy. Wallaroos have rusty coloured fur and rounded ears and this one was very gentle in nature.
