Friends of the Koala’s second community planting day will take place on Saturday 19th of August and we invite you to join us!
Our second community planting day is again made possible thanks to the Australian Government’s grant for its ‘Hanging out at East Coraki: Koalas thriving in an agricultural landscape’ – project.
Our first community planting day saw twenty five dedicated people come from as far as Evans and Lennox Head plant five hundred and thirty five trees to support koalas in this agricultural landscape.
Gather up your friends and join us for a morning of planting with refreshments and a light lunch – book your spot with Ina at: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0413 710 9147.

About the project
Koalas in this area survive on food trees along a narrow riparian strip, single paddock trees and trees planted by landholders in the past but there aren’t enough koala food trees to sustain the local sub-population and as a result the area is overpopulated. Read more about the project here.
