Adopt Smarty Pants

April 17, 2019
Tom Doherty Park, Acland

Smarty Pants is a wild Koala and lives near a coal mine that may destroy his habitat.

He is known to make a regular appearance at the ANZAC service in Acland which AKF Chair Deborah Tabart attends annually.

Although Smarty Pants lives in the wild and may look like he is enjoying the juicy eucalyptus leaves of whichever gumtree his heart desires, he faces the real threat of mining. For a Koala, not only does this result in the loss of habitat but also food.

The total area of gas and coal mines in QLD and NSW is equivalent to 2.7 per cent of the Australia’s land mass and much of this is Koala habitat.

Smarty Pants represents all Koalas threatened by mining and by adopting him today, you will help him get one step closer to attending next year’s ANZAC service.

$ 30 00 AUD

When you adopt a Koala, you receive a beautiful personalised adoption certificate with a photo of your Koala, a welcome letter, Koala stickers, and more. And if you are in the area you can drop in and visit the adorable Koala you adopted! *(Cost of Koala adoption does not include park admission fees).

*We cannot guarantee however, that the adopted Koala will be available for viewing on the day so it is always best to contact the zoo or park prior to your visit to avoid disappointment.

Please note: Koalas are not pets. This is a symbolic Koala adoption, or a ‘foster’ program. Your monthly donation, which is a twelve month commitment, goes towards the work of helping save Koalas in the wild; so by adopting one of these gorgeous Koalas, you will be helping their less fortunate wild cousins! The Adopt a Koala program is not tax deductable and is a twelve month program.
