Canguro Dundee

Chris Barnes, mas conocido como Brolga, es un ex boxeador, un hombre que ya ha pasado los 40 años, solitario y en apariencia rudo, que ha dedicado su vida a cuidar a los canguros huérfanos de Australia. Brolga vive de forma austera en pleno corazón de Australia, en una basta extensión de terreno semidesértico que ha con mucho esfuerzo ha convertido en The Kangaroo Sanctuary Alice Springs, un santuario para los canguros.

Su vida desde hace mas de 20 años transcurre entre biberón y biberón y la carretera, que recorre en busca de canguros huérfanos cuyas madres han sido atropelladas por los coches. Los rescata de una muerte segura y se convierte en su mamá hasta que los pequeños canguros pueden valerse por ellos mismos.

Los pequeños canguros necesitan seis tomas de leche al día y tienen que ser transportados en fundas de tela que hacen de veces de marsupio artificial, imitando al de su madre.

Sin ayudas y con mucho esfuerzo, tomando cualquier trabajo que le ofrecían, ha construir una reserva donde aloja temporalmente a los animales que el mismo rescata. Un recinto espacioso, protegido de depredadores.

Brolga with his kangeroos at the supermarket. See SWNS story SWROO. A gentle giant has been nicknamed ‘Kangaroo Dundee’ after rescuing and raising more than 200 orphan marsupials. Brolga, a 6ft7 Australian, gave up a life in the city to open his own sanctuary in the outback where plays the role of a kangaroo mum. The kindhearted bachelor, whose lifestyle means he has struggled to find his dream woman, now lives in a shack with no running water or boiler. But he doesn’t care about modern luxuries - with caring for his beloved kangaroos the most important thing in his life. The Aussie cares for the babies 24-hours a day, taking them to the supermarket and letting them sleep at the bottom of his bed. Brolga, whose real name is Chris Barns, and faces the regular risk of bushfires and wild dogs, has had his amazing story documented in the tender two-part BBC2 series Kangaroo Dundee.
