“Although koalas are not classed as endangered they are protected by law as their habitat is under threat. Nearly 80% of their habitat has been lost to land clearing, drought and bushfires. Urgent action is required as it is believed they could be extinct in New South Wales by 2050. Koalas are a part of our national identity and I feel it is important to be involved in this project. “ Julie-Anne GATEHOUSE
