Archer had a tough start to life after his mother sadly abandoned him. Staples stepped in and provided a human care pouch for the cute little marsupial and for the first few weeks got out of bed three times a night to bottle-feed him. Archer was then introduced to the Koala Sanctuary at Featherdale and has become the face of the park’s individual animal sponsorship program. Interest in him as been so strong he has his own public profile on social media and was also voted ‘Australia’s Cutest Animal’. Archer has appeared on television on numerous occasions.
