Students keep Australian animals ‘sew’ warm


Students in intermediate and advanced sewing at Oakville High School made ‘joey pouches’ to help animals stranded by the Australian wildfires, including kangaroo ‘joeys’ and koalas. The students’ work is coordinated with the Animal Rescue Craft Guild, a group of volunteers who produce pouches, wraps and more for orphaned wildlife. To the baby marsupials, the pouches are intended to mimic the missing mother’s own pouch.
