This is a koala named Jeremy. He’s been receiving medical treatment from four Australian wildlife agencies.

“Get your friends to get sewing,” the Australian Marine Wildlife Research And Rescue Organization wrote on Facebook.

Jeremy was the first victim of a series of brushfires spreading across the states of South Australia and Victoria.

Jeremy received second-degree burns on his paws, but according to the Australian Marine Wildlife Research and Rescue Organization, he was in good spirits.

“Koalas urgently need your help. Please cut out our pattern and get your friends to get sewing too,” the group wrote on its Facebook page.

Here’s Jeremy wearing his brand-new mittens. He looks very stylish. Unfortunately, the group told reporters they expect many more animals coming in in need of medical attention.
