Barely a day goes by where we don’t hear about koala deaths on roads and in deforestation, and dwindling numbers, and the loss of habitat that could see our warm and fuzzy friend travel up the Red List from vulnerable to endangered, even extinct.
The Bangalow Koalas group are offering the public a chance to do something fun on election day by putting some energy into planting trees for koalas.
There are 1,150 koala and rainforest trees to plant so Bangalow Koalas is having a working bee.
If you want to volunteer a couple of hours of your time helping one of Australia’s cutest furry friends, the group says it’s easy.
There’ll be no weeding, no digging and no whipper snipping, just you planting trees in pre-dug holes and mulching.
As a thank you the Bangalow Lions are going to lay on a free sausage sizzle, there will also be sandwiches available, kindly made by Julie Frankham.
What you need to bring are trowels, buckets, drinking water and sunscreen.
What you need to wear are long sleeves, long pants, gloves, fully enclosed footwear and a hat.
The planting day will begin at 9am on Saturday 23rd March at 90 – 92 Dudgeons Lane, Bangalow.
