The first southern koala ever to be born in Europe will be introduced this weekend to visitors at a British safari park.
It is a historic moment marking the success of an effort to breed koalas away from the threats of bushfires and disease in their native Australia.
Four females and a male made an epic journey from Adelaide to Longleat Safari Park, Wilts, in 2019 to establish a European population.
