The Wild Koala
May 3 is National Wild Koala Day!
A day to celebrate wild koalas and protect their habitats
The inaugural Wild Koala Day was held on 3 May 2016 and it received lots of media and community attention.
Koalas are worth over $3 billion to Australia's economy every year, yet we spend very little on protecting them in the wild. In fact, recent studies have shown that koalas are in decline in most of their Australian range (yes, even in Victoria).
Surely its time we invested in this fluffy icon, before we lose them forever?
To address this, a concerned group of koala conservationists Australia-wide have
declared May 3rd - Wild Koala Day.
On International Wild Koala Day, overseas friends of the koala can get involved on the activities on the projects page and Australians can get involved in the projects, but of course most of them you can do ALL YEAR round!
