Save the Koala Month finishes today and it has been very hectic. We launched our month at Dreamworld when David Tree, the famous firefighter, came to Brisbane and told us stories about finding Sam the koala during the Victorian Bushfires. We then launched our new No...

This morning I received an email from Wendy, a woman who is trying to stop a car rally driving through her part of Australia. Over the last few months many people in the district have been contacting AKF about this – because the rally will drive through an area...

It is nearly 7 pm. I am waiting to ring in to a local radio station in Northern New South Wales. The presenter's name is Pussycat.  This is a community radio station and she wants to understand why it is so difficult to get the koala protected by the Federal...
