Koalas have been in danger for some time. For years we have seen a dramatic decline in koala numbers because of excessive tree clearing, urban development, drought, road accidents, mining and domestic and wild dog attacks.
The odds were already stacked against the koala. The devastating bushfires are another nail in the coffin.
But all is not lost. It’s not too late. We need hope in our hearts and that’s what we can get by creating a meaningful Koala Protection Act that will:
- Ensure that potential actions which may threaten the koala are carefully considered with due concern for the consequences
- Protect the koala for future generations
- Protect the habitat on which the koala depends
Please take a few moments to sign our petition to sanction a Koala Protection Act.
