A British safari park is celebrating the first ever southern koala to be born in Europe as part of its ground-breaking breeding programme.
The baby marsupial marks a historic moment for the project that is aimed at producing a 'back up' European population for the species.
Southern koalas are continually under threat from bush fires and disease in their native Australia.
