The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is asking everyone to help save the koala by adopting their very own.
CEO of the Australian Koala Foundation Deborah Tabart OAM said she encourages everyone to adopt a koala through the AKF’s Adopt-A-Koala program.
“A koala is a perfect gift for any occasion and is a rewarding way to help save the koala”, said Ms Tabart.
The AKF estimates there are only 80 000 with potentially as few as 40 000, koalas left in the wild
“It would be heartbreaking if international visitors and indeed Australians could no longer experience the thrill of seeing a koala in the wild” Ms Tabart said.
Koalas on the Australian Koala Foundation’s Adopt-a-Koala program live in sanctuaries around Australia and all proceeds from their adoptions go towards saving their wild cousins and preserving their natural habitat.
