Save our koalas

FRASER Coast animal lovers have the next two days to celebrate National Save the Koala Month before it comes to an end on Saturday.

The event helps the Australian Koala Foundation to raise money for research, public awareness campaigns and environmental programs.

It is especially important for environmental groups on the Fraser Coast after concern the local population was disappearing.

A campaign was launched by Fraser Coast woman Natalie Richardson earlier this year to map where koalas have been spotted in order to protect those habitats.

She blamed loss of habitat, cars, dog and disease for the decrease in the local koala population.

Email koalasfrasercoast@hotmail.com for more information on the campaign.
