Koala Woman Says
I don't know much about this electorate except that Vaucluse was developed very early on, beginning in about 1810. After about 1940 the only vegetation left was at Cooper Park, where a remnant of good Koala habitat remains. We don’t know if Koalas ever used this bush, or when they disappeared. We can just assume that if there are Koala trees then there were Koalas.
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 Turnbull capable of heeding our concerns and supporting a Koala Protection Act?
We need to gain his support for a sustainable future. Ask him.
