Save The Koala - This Is Extremely Serious

September is the "Save The Koala Month" and culminates this year with "Save The Koala Day", on Friday 26 September . The aim of Save the Koala Day is to raise awareness of the plight of one of Australia's most loved icons and the problems they face as their habitat is cleared.

Disease and climate change have had a real impact on the Koala population. With housing encroaching on the Koala's natural habitat, there is increased risk of dog attacks and road accidents. Simple measures like planting new and maintaining existing trees that Koalas feed on and keeping dogs secure at night go a long way to help.
