Koala Visitors at the Santa Barbara Zoo

Good news, mates: Edmund and Thackory have arrived! For the next year, these two "ambassador-able" marsupials can be found eating eucalyptus in their brand-new exhibit next to the train station. Edmund and Thackory are not only here to be adorable, but to bring awareness to the challenges facing koalas and other important Australian species.
