This clip, filmed in New South Wales, Australia, shows the bittersweet moment when rescuers make the lucky retrieval of a live joey from its dead mama’s pouch.
On arrival, the crew find that the kangaroo is female, and she’s pregnant. A closer examination reveals movement in her pouch—it’s a newborn joey!
The mother roo lies motionless on her side while rescuers gently remove the tiny pinkie.
They gently pull the newborn joey out and tend to it. It is a massive relief to discover it is unharmed.
The joey was quickly transported to experienced carers, where it will receive all the help it needs in a safe environment.
