The LIVING with KOALAS education, regeneration & conservation programme includes positive, practical measures dealing with the main threat to koalas in the wild on the mid-north coast of NSW:
Programme initiatives will cover AWARENESS & EDUCATION campaigns, talks & school visits | Koala SPOTTING & TRACKING | Koala food tree NURTURING programme | Kar Kards with emergency wildlife care numbers….
Fund-raising events & sponsorships will also raise money for FOOD TREE planting, RESEARCH & LOBBYING.
For koalas in the wild the difference between human ACTION and INACTION is … EXTINCTION.
