Tag a mate who needs to hydrate! 汳ヲ
While we all love our sunburnt country, make sure you窶决e taking adequate water supplies when hitting our national parks in this warm weather. 
Rangers at #MagneticIslandNationalPark helped this little guy out when he was found not doing too well in the heat. After a quick drink he was on his merry way. 
Remember, if you do come across an injured or sick animal, report it to the RSPCA or call 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
Thanks to Ranger Rikki for the footage!
