Port Lincoln, Australia, April 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Wilderness Wanders Sightseeing and Outdoor Adventure Holidays based in Port Lincoln South Australia is the new home for "Steve" a gorgeous six month old Western Grey joey who's mother is yet another sad road accident fatality. Steve was brought to Wilderness Wanders proprietors Phil and Amanda Porter who are well known in the small country town as native animal rescuers for a second chance of life.
Port Lincoln, just a 35 minute flight away from Adelaide the capital of stunning South Australia, is home to a booming tuna fishing industry, situated on the southern tip of the Eyre Peninsula. It is backed by the remarkable Lincoln National Park, which offers fantastic coastal landscape and spectacular surfing beaches.
Wilderness Wanders offers ecologically sustainable tourism experiences with both 4wd and guided walking adventures, which boast advanced eco accreditation focussing on experiencing natural areas that foster environmental understanding, appreciation and conservation.
Although Steve the newly adopted joey requires four hourly bottle feeds and specialist care and will eventually grow to a whopping 55 kilos and reach approximately 7 foot tall, for now he is content to hang around in his home made pouch consisting of warm cozy recycled woolen blankets and to accompany each Wilderness Wanders tour in an effort to stay close to his carers and adopted parents.
Wilderness Wanders proprietor and tour guide Phil Porter stated," As devoted carers we know that it is imperative that Steve has our experienced attention around the clock, and to do this he accompanies us on tour and interacts with our guests in order to become confident and socialised."
Steve is the sixth joey the Porters have rescued and will be released on their tree studded rural property to liase with the rest of the mob when he has become independant. "Until then, Steve is an absolute delight to have in our constant company, his endearing nature captures the hearts of our guests while on holiday with Wilderness Wanders and many Australian guests have signed up in their home towns to become much needed native animal carers themselves."
