It is fantastic to see a young world leader knowing that he has to stand up for the environment and our planet, not just for his own constituency ( watch here ). I understand he also gave a similar message to the President of the United States. When the AKF went to...
I was watching TV with Mum yesterday and I saw the story about the dog who became an Honorary Police Dog even though he was very OLD – nearly 13. I am nearly 8 in human years so I have a long time to go for my work to save the Koala. Video: Max becomes Queensland's first honorary police dog

Dear Koala Lovers, Welcome to 2018 and I know it is going to be a great year for the AKF in our endeavours to find the way to enact the Koala Protection Act. Over the summer, I had quite a few weeks off and Mr Darcy and the rest of the troops loved having me around and vice versa. It was great to get away from the madding crowd. In Australia we have the most wonderful national public radio, and...
