Let’s be honest, there is no such thing as too much cute animal content. This is why I’m pleased to inform you that you can now add the adorbs koalas of Queensland‘s Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary to your live streaming lists.
I have to be honest, I had exactly the same thought as you: don’t koala’s spend most of their day doing basically nothing? I can’t be the only one who’s experienced this nearly every time I visit a zoo?

Although there was that one time I was driving home at 3am and a koala crossed the road. I honestly thought it was some sort of demon dog until I got closer. VERY exciting stuff, if I’m honest.
Anyway, I digress. The point is we’re all wrong. I’ve been watching the cameras all morning — for research purposes only, of course — and it turns out Australia’s favourite fluffballs actually move around quite a bit.
We’re just used to seeing them in the middle of the day when it’s super hot and they’ve devoured their own weights worth of gum leaves (probably). Your best bet for movement is early or late in the day.
Let me just tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen the little joeys bouncing about the place.
I’m not a doctor or anything, but in these stressful times I strongly recommend setting up a bunch of screens around you and just constantly having a live stream of every animal at all times. It’s the kind of therapy that just soothes the soul.
