The connection between a mother and her child is the strongest power on the planet. This doesn’t apply only to humans. Animals are also attached to their babies the same way as people are. And this heartwarming moment of a newborn koala who sees its mommy for the first time show how unique the bond between a mother and her little one is  no matter the species.

Koalas are native to Australia. Although they are asocial animals, they appreciate only the bond is between babies and their moms. That kind of connection is very special and unique.

Fortunately, employees at the Symbio Wildlife Park in Helensburgh, Australia caught on camera an amazing moment when a newborn koala meets its mom for the very first time.

The video shows the heart-melting moment when the little joey is relaxing in its mom pouch. At the same time, the adorable little creature turns its head up and sees its mom for the first time. The next moment is irresistible when the koala mom and her baby look in each other’s eyes. Both of them look so happy!

According to the World Wide Fund, the koala is one of Australia’s “most iconic animal species.”They have a tailless body, large head with round, fluffy ears and large, spoon-shaped nose. People immediately recognize the marsupial native as a symbol of Australia.

However, the future isn’t so bright for these cute mammals. According to the Australian Koala Foundation, their number has dramatically decreased in the last few years. Also, wildfires have killed at least 8,000 koalas. They may be on the verge of extinction. Currently, there are less than 80,000 individuals left in Australia.
