Photo taken on Dec. 6, 2020 shows a female Koala in health check in Melbourne, Australia. After months of treatments and recoveries, koalas severely injured in Australia's devastating bushfires last summer have finally returned home. Fourteen koalas have been released into bushland at sites in Victoria's East Gippsland region, close to where they were originally found over the past month, with the final group of eight released over the past weekend, Zoo Victoria said in a statement on Monday. The koalas which were rescued after the blazes in January this year, underwent multiple surgeries for severe burns and many months of follow-up treatment. Following extensive treatment, they had also been "rewilding" by building up their strength, fitness and climbing abilities at a large enclosure at Phillip Island Nature Parks and Healesville Sanctuary. (Zoos Victoria/Handout via Xinhua)
