Deborah's Diary

18 April 2016

I am back from America all fired up ready to have our political leaders support a Koala Protection Act.

Hi Koala lovers,

I am witing to you from Washington DC where I am meeting with international lobbyists who can help the AKF with a Koala Protection Act.

The KPA is now written and just a few legal tweaks being made by our legal team.  It is very exciting.

What I have realised is that when the time comes for our political leaders to really realise that we mean business with this legislation, we will need someone who can stand firm in the negotiations.

Hi Koala lovers! If you haven't done so already now is the time - Join the Koala Army!

Fond regards,

Hi Koala lovers! 2016 is an Australian election year and the AKF will continue to encourage Australian federal political leaders to support the protection of the Koala via a Koala Protection Act.

Hi koala lovers,

Just a quick note to say I hope you are all well and had a great holiday season. 2016 is here and what a great year it is turning out to be already, it will certainly be exciting.

Stay tuned as a new diary entry will be coming shortly!

Fond regards,

Deborah.

Hi Koala lovers,

 

I am going on leave today and return to the office on 4th January, 2016. That will be the year the AKF achieves its greatest goal; to gain support from 76 politicians to enact  Koala Protection Act.

There are 150 federal politicians in Australia that have the power to make it happen. All we need is half, plus one to table the document.

Hi Koala lovers,

AKF Chief Ecologist Dr Douglas Kerlin has written a piece which reminisces about our visit to the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference in 2009, and AKF's view about what's needed following the Paris Climate talks that are on right now. 

Read it on our News & Events Page here.

Fond Regards,

Hi all,

I am very pleased and proud to announce that my first book, titled Koala Stories, has been released today and is now available for purchase from Save The Koala Shop!

It will make a gorgeous Christmas gift for family and friends in Australia, and at 18cm X 20cm it's perfect to carry or send to overseas to loved ones.

Hi all,

Today I sent our Prime Minister all of our maps that show how much Koala vegetation has been lost since 1788, and how hard it is for the Koala to exist in the remaining areas. I have also sent him a document that outlines how many Federal Electorates have more than 5000 Koalas. Only 6. It is truly shocking.

I have also “scrawled” all over the maps and asked the following questions or comments.
