Does this put the situation into perspective? We need to save the koala! Do you have a local magazine or newsletter that would feature this ad? How can we spread the word? #STKM

On May 3rd, the AKF ran its first full day trip to the stunning property Quinlan's.

Emojis are "ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and Web pages". With text unable to convey 'tone', emojis are used to denote various emotions from the sender. We are not entirely sure when (and even why!) the Koala emoji was created but we are pretty...
