Deborah's Diary

Hello Koala lovers, I am going to Quinlan's tomorrow and I will do what I love best; be in the bush. Quinlan’s is looking beautiful because we have had good rain and many of the trees and shrubs planted are starting to thrive. In the spring, it was marvellous to see seed on some of the lovely understorey we planted nearly 4 years ago. This will mean that the seeds will now blow in the wind and...

For regular readers of my Diary, you will know that he was the Minister who...

Hello Koala Lovers, Our Federal Government has now been finalised and the AKF has some ideas on who we will be dealing with for the next 3 years. All I hope is that they will want to help the Koala. Although our Prime Minister says he has a clear mandate to rule, his hold on power is very tenuous and it is clear that the Australian people are in charge. Matilda and I are both happy about that...
Hello Koala lovers, Australia goes to the polls this Saturday. Matilda is still on the road spreading concern for the Koala, and of course her prime mission is to have our political leaders support a Koala Protection Act. After our road trip, Matilda and I are clear about the following. That all four current leaders, Mr. Turnbull (LNP) Mr. Shorten (Labor), Mr. Di Natale (Greens) and Mr. Joyce (...
Hello Koala lovers, I am writing this in a little motel in Narrandera. Matilda and I arrived last night, and she was stabled in a lovely spot on the edge of the Murrumbidgee River where there is beautiful Koala habitat. This morning I will be going with the local koala group to look at some wild Koalas. One of the things that has really been shown to me as we travel around is that the east coast...
