A Young Orphaned Kangaroo Refuses To Release Go Of Her Handler

In the small town of Alice Springs in the heart of Australia, a unique and touching story has been unfolding. A kangaroo, who was orphaned at a young age, has formed an unbreakable bond with his human caretaker and refuses to leave his side.

Baby kangaroos live safely in their mother’s pouch for six to eight months. It’s comfy inside, and they are accustomed to being in constant contact with their mother.

When a baby kangaroo is orphaned, they still crave that reassuring touch. They miss the warmth and reassurance of their mother and will connect closely with the person caring for them when their mom can’t.

Seeing a baby kangaroo cuddle with its caretaker is the sweetest thing. This little one shows how much she loves her foster by holding on tight to her caretaker; he’s not about to let him go.

Chris “Brolga” Barns takes care of the adorable orphaned joey after his mother is no longer to care for him in June.

Mr. Barns is known as “Kangaroo Dundee” because he rescues ɪɴᴊᴜʀᴇᴅ and ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ kangaroos. He became aware of the need for kangaroo caretakers while working as a tour guide in the North Territory.

So, he began building a kangaroo sanctuary, which was finished in 2005. The facility is 36 hectares and is located in Alice Springs. There Kangaroo Dundee can save orphaned kangaroos and act as their surrogate mother.

All the orphaned kangaroos and the public are thankful for all their hard work and dedication to the sanctuary. So much so that Mr. Barns was a candidate for Australian of the Year in 2014.


Watching him cuddle with Indi is more than adorable. The sweet baby adores him, and the feeling is mutual. Thanks to him, many kangaroos are alive today due to his care and love for them.

In a world where so many animals are ʀᴇᴊᴇᴄᴛᴇᴅ and ᴀʙᴀɴᴅᴏɴᴇᴅ, it’s heartening to see such a strong bond between a human and an orphaned kangaroo. Indi’s love and loyalty to Barns serve as a reminder that love knows no boundaries and that family is not just limited to our own species.
