Three koalas arrived at Pairi Daiza on Saturday morning, the Zoo announced in a press release.
Their arrival, which was initially planned on the 24th of March, was delayed due to the Brussels and Zaventem attacks.
The three marsupials arrived at the Zoo at 7.40 am on Saturday morning. They came from Brisbane, after a journey of 16,000 km. The females, Carina, Coco and Zelda, “are doing really well, and settling into their new surroundings”.
They will be kept in quarantine for a few weeks, but visitors can already see them from outside, through glass panels. The koalas should be able to go outside at the beginning of May at the earliest.
