Koala Hero

September is almost here and that means it is nearly time to celebrate Save the Koala Month. This annual event is an opportunity to raise awareness about the need to protect koalas and their habitats and to take action to save help them. The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) invites everyone to join them in celebrating this September.

Koalas are one of Australia's most iconic and beloved animals and they are looking for heroes that can make a difference. This month you can be a Koala Hero by taking part in 30 small actions to help Koalas in 30 different ways.

To make it easy, the AKF has created a 30-day suggestion list of activities that you can choose from to both entertain you during this fantastic month and show your love for Koalas. From hosting a bake sale or trivia night with friends to volunteering for wildlife conservation, there are so many ways to get involved.

Follow the AKF on Facebook and Instagram from 1 September to find out ways you can support our beloved Koalas.

"The AKF is committed to saving the Koala and its habitat, but we cannot do it alone," said Deborah Tabart OAM, Chair of the AKF.

"We need the support of the community to raise awareness and take action to save the Koala. Together we can make a difference. Save the Koala Month is an integral part of our fundraising efforts as we receive no government funding."

Let's be a Koala Hero during Save The Koala Month to and protect them and their habitat for future generations.

Climate Councillor and Economist Nicki Hutley said: “This decision is a triple failure: it fails policy, it fails climate leadership, and it fails to protect the health and wellbeing of communities across NSW and the nation.
