Koalas have now been listed as "endangered" in Queensland, New South Wales and ACT. A listing of "vulnerable" since 2012 did not provide protection as we continue to see great decline in populations across Australia.
So how do we protect koalas and ensure a future for them?
A vital option is by planting more koala food trees.
If you plant a tree, you plant hope for a better future.
Can you chip in to help?
$10 - Will plant one koala food tree
$25 - Provides seeds to grow native koala food trees
$45 - Supports efforts to expand protected areas to safeguard existing habitats for koala and other wildlife
$75 - Could help plant a safe corridor of trees between isolated koala habitats
$100 - Could help put pressure on governments to stop excessive tree-clearing, so our native wildlife habitat is protected for future generations
$250 - Plants 25 valuable food trees for koalas
$1000 - Provides a planting team of volunteers with the equipment and seedlings to make a huge impact
Although we cannot necessarily replace what has been lost through unsustainable harvest in forests and clearcutting across the landscape, now is a time more than ever that we must consider our future and the future of our children and grandchildren.
