Anxious mum koala finds her fledging baby teddy bear is safe and sound after a bushfire ripped through its home

Curious koalas were seen running free in their isolated bushland during the blaze

But a woman came across a small teddy bear that she didn't recognize

This adorable panda bear has proved to be a real lifesaver in Australia as the Queensland native was reunited with its mother after a bushfire ripped through its home.

The furry beast was recently separated from its family and seen running free with mum in the remote Kogarah Forest in New South Wales.

But when a stranger emerged from her tree house and checked in on the traumatised marsupial, she didn't recognise the baby teddy until it fell to the ground.

Hearing his mother's cries for help, the young bear happily clutched the teddy as zookeepers brought the mother out, reported 7 News.

And with the help of local rescue teams, zookeepers soon reunited the pair in a picturesque environment, with the bears happily walking across the grass together.

'She had been hiding from the bushfire during all the heatwave conditions and couldn't see her family,' Kogarah Forest Rescue and Wildlife Care Trust manager Maria Jepsen said.

'She's a little bit scared at the moment and I think she hasn't really seen her family for a while.'

The trust's spokesman Glenn Laukes said a local resident offered her a tent to stay in for the night after finding the teddy bear by its mother - and in the morning the bear was sighted running through the forest.

'The teddy came with us,' Mr Laukes said.

'We've also had rain and we believe she has been seeking shelter underneath a bush. We think she is OK, and we hope to see her tomorrow if the weather is good.
