Help for the kangaroos
We received an email from Australia beginning of January 2020. Brenna Jensen, owner of the Australian online shop Woollykins and longtime disana customer asked for help.
There are countless animals that lost their lives with the catastrophic fires in Australia. Animals that survived couldn’t find enough food because complete living spaces have been destroyed. Small kangaroo babies lost their mothers and with this also the protecting pouch.
Local wildlife carers got in touch with Brenna when they were searching for natural fibers for the kangaroo’s sensitive skin. Brenna created a pouch out of used disana tie-on nappies and brushed cotton liners from her two-year old daughter. The small kangaroos loved this prototype so much that many volunteers wanted to sew more pouches for them.
