Well, aren't they just adorable! Ocean Park is expecting some new stars - four eucalyptus-munching koalas.

The cute furballs are currently in quarantine in their native Australia, but could arrive as soon as August.

The South Australian government signed a deal last year to gift eight koalas, all from the Cleland Wildlife Park in Adelaide, to Ocean Park's new 5,000-square-metre "Adventures in Australia" zone.

The rest of the koalas will join the exhibition in the next two years. The new facility, which is expected to open soon, will also house two other species which are unique to Australia: wallabies and kookaburras.

The koala is known for its big appetite. Ocean Park has planted 8,000 eucalyptus trees in Guangdong province so they won't go hungry. An average koala eats about 1kg of the plant's leaves every day.

Staff from Ocean Park are already in Australia to train for six months and learn how to care for the koalas. Koalas are sensitive to noise, so visitors are reminded to keep as quiet as possible.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
