Novak Djokovic and Team Serbia were seen having some fun at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Queensland ahead of the ATP Cup 2020. Australia is home to the largest population of the endangered species. Djokovic explored the Koala lifestyle while also answering some questions of the Australian media.
Novak Djokovic revealed his excitement at meeting the cute animal. The Serb took the opportunity to express solidarity with the victim of the Australian Bush Fires.
He reflected upon the fact that many Koalas and Australian wildlife species are losing their habitats because of these fires. This pushes these already endangered animals to the brink of extinction.
However, he also expressed happiness at the fact that it is possible to start conversations about conservation and their rehabilitation. He was hopeful that things will sort out soon enough.
