Kevin - a success story

A baby echidna was rescued from floodwaters in Menindee in November 2022. He was named Kevin, after his rescuer Kevin Staker, who found the puggle floating next to the road. Kevin was between three and four months old at the time. Following the rescue, he was was driven more than 100 kilometres to Broken Hill, where RRANA team members took care of him. Kevin was then transferred to Dubbo (more than 700km east of where he was found) for further care by specialised carers. When he is healthy enough, Kevin will be taken back and released near Menindee.
