Hello Koala Lovers,

Hello Koala lovers!

It's been a busy work in the AKF office with a couple of curiously synchronised goings-on in Queensland and New South Wales - with no action from the Federal Government.

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.
