A global community of nature enthusiasts
photographing and learning about wildlife
September is Save the Koala Month, the annual awareness and fundraising campaign of the Australian Koala Foundation (AKF). The AKF is the principal not for profit, non-government organisation which has, for 25 years, been dedicated to saving the wild koala and its habitat. This year the theme is “It’s time to worry mate!” The reason is self explanatory – it’s time to worry about the plight of Australia’s rapidly declining national icon. The AKF estimates that no more than 80,000 and probably closer to 43,000 koalas remain in the wild.
