Koala Woman Says
The last Koala was reported at Dolans Bay in 1976. I believe there were many more koalas at the time of white settlement but farming and then post-war housing development has sent them to extinction. How sad that it is only in the last few years that we have given thought to how Koalas and people can share the environment.
We would hope the Prime Minister of our country understands the significance of this iconic species to our cultural heritage and to our world standing. Every time a dignitary visits Australia and has their photo taken, usually with a Koala from a zoo, no one wants to mention that it is now vulnerable to extinction.
Is Prime Minister Morrison capable of heeding our concerns and supporting a Koala Protection Act?
We need to gain his support for a sustainable future. Ask him.
