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
