A once-bustling ecosystem was reduced to a scattered pile of wood chips and twigs, leaving the area's former residents struggling to cope with the sudden loss of their home.
The large swath of land was cleared to make room for a housing development in Queensland, Australia, killing or displacing countless animals in the process. Not long after, a volunteer from the animal rescue group Wildcare Australia Inc. encountered one such creature, a clearly confused koala gazing upon the ruins of the place she used to live.
"This would have been Ash's home range since she became independent from her mother," the group wrote online. "There is now nothing left for her to return to."
