Abigail is likely to be one of the most affectionate rescued animals in the world, and her story raises awareness of the hunting issue that orphaned numerous joeys in the Australian outback.
Queen Abi starts her day by hugging the people who look after her at the Kangaroo Sanctuary, which is located outside of Alice Springs. It provides specialized care to kangaroos, rehabilitating orphaned joeys from the hunting and helps them to enter the wilderness.
Little Abigail lost her mom when she was only a few months old, and volunteers at the sanctuary welcomed her with open arms.
The founder of the non-profit sanctuary, Chris Brolga, founded it after realizing the nearest wildlife rescue center and a hospital was over 1,500km away. It has 188 acres of land, a rescue center, and provides tours to visitors.
Queen Abi hugs are the best hugs 🤗 💖
Abi has been living in the sanctuary for over a decade, and he has developed a special relationship with her rescuers.
In a Facebook back in 2013, one of the sanctuary caretakers wrote:
“Abi came to me as an orphan of 5 months old and was quite busted up with cuts and scrapes. And [she] is my only kangaroo who comes up and gives a great big rugby tackle cuddle.”

Nowadays, Queen Abi is as joyful and loving animals as several years ago, and her regular massive sniggles show her caretakers how grateful she feels.
The employees and volunteers at the sanctuary are extremely loving and caring, and the hugging kangaroo is a part of this large, heart-warming kangaroo and human family.
