Little kangaroos - level 2
Many little kangaroos lose their mothers to traffic accidents in Australia. Luckily, there are volunteers who look after the orphans.
Their work involves more than just that, though. They go to schools and markets with all the animals. Many people do not come into contact with animals or nature, but the volunteers give them a chance. People can see and touch the animals.
One volunteer said that he took a little kangaroo to his university class – everybody loved it! A little kangaroo is great during exam time – it is a good stress-relief.
Difficult words: volunteer (a person who does something for free because he wants to do it), orphan (a child/ animal whose parents are dead), stress-relief (something which helps you let go of stress).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
