Our new Government will be sworn in tomorrow and the new Environment Minister will be Mr Greg Hunt. Mr. Hunt is well known to the AKF and as soon as he settles into his chair, we will ask for a meeting with him to discuss Koala conservation federally. Mr. Hunt knows that the AKF is against the powers that protect Koalas being taken away from Canberra and we will fight that vigorously until a Koala Protection Act comes into place.
It is Save the Koala Month and all our attention now is focussed on raising funds for our work. We take no Government funding and donations from you, help us to speak out for the Koala. They do not have a voice on their own.
Donations are very welcome and I will keep you updated over the comings weeks about where the Government is heading with regard to Koala conservation.
