Dave Mitchell, our Landscape Ecologist is in Canberra this week to deliver a powerful presentation on the value of the AKF's maps and how they can be used to help plan development and ecological conservation in our country.

Hello Koala lovers,

I am going to Quinlan's tomorrow and I will do what I love best; be in the bush.

Hello Koala Lovers,  

On Friday I wrote to the Premier of Queensland and also the Federal Minister for the Environment and Energy

The Queensland Minister for the Environment, Mr. Steven Miles has asked for submissions regarding Koala conservation in South East Queensland, the deadline for which is Friday, October 21st.

Happy Save the Koala Day to you all!

Thank you for your continued support of the Koala via the AKF and as you will see from my letter to the new Environment Minister, we are committed to protecting Koala habitat via the Koala Protection Act.

Hello Koala Lovers,

Happy Save the Koala Month!  The team and I are so thrilled to be hearing from you, telling us how you are going to celebrate.
This is the time for the AKF to receive financial support for our valuable work.
Remember, AKF takes no Government funding which allows us to speak freely for the Koala.

Hello Koala Lovers,

Our Federal Government has now been finalised and the AKF has some ideas on who we will be dealing with for the next 3 years. All I hope is that they will want to help the Koala. 

Although our Prime Minister says he has a clear mandate to rule, his hold on power is very tenuous and it is clear that the Australian people are in charge.   Matilda and I are both happy about that fact.

Hello Koala lovers,

Australia goes to the polls this Saturday. Matilda is still on the road spreading concern for the Koala, and of course her prime mission is to have our political leaders support a Koala Protection Act.

After our road trip, Matilda and I are clear about the following.

Hello Koala lovers,

I am writing this in a little motel in Narrandera. Matilda and I arrived last night, and she was stabled in a lovely spot on the edge of the Murrumbidgee River where there is beautiful Koala habitat.

This morning I will be going with the local koala group to look at some wild Koalas.

Hi Koala lovers,

We have reached Day 5 on the road, and Matilda is doing great. She's been meeting journalists and locals the whole way down the east coast.

As we inch closer to Canberra, I feel more determined than ever to get the Koala Protection Act.

I hope you're keeping up to date with Matilda's journey on vote1matilda.com
