The eco Koala fundraising pack, with some Koala Love
Koalas are often considered Australia’s most popular and loved native animal. Koala’s are a national Australian emblem for good reason.
Known for their peaceful nature and cute faces, they are beloved around the world and the highlight of many international tourist’s visit is seeing Australian Koalas.
Koalas sadly though have been on a massive decline in the wild for some time now. They are vulnerable to heat stress, habitat loss, animal attacks and awful diseases like chlamydia.
While habitat loss and disease contributes the most to the Koala’s national population decline bushfires are currently catastrophic for them. Due to their slow-moving nature they are unable to escape intense bushfires and the ones that survive are often badly burnt and need urgent medical help.
BUT you can help the koalas
Helping Koalas costs wildlife carers and organisations a lot of money. Treatment and medicine are very expensive and many carers are volunteers, they don’t get paid for helping the koalas and often have to pay for medicine themselves. They do it for the love they have for these amazing animals and that means they are extremely limited to how many they can help and their treatment options.
They need financial help and donations to help save our koalas
After recent bushfires caused so many casualties and exacerbated their habitat loss in Australia, Koalas are doing it harder than ever and even now classed as functionally extinct in some areas, they really need our help! One thing to come out of the fires is the heightened awareness that our beautiful koalas need our help. At Lujo Home we have put together a pack to help raise much needed funds for our chosen Koala rescue, the Southern Koala Rescue in South Australia. Read on to find our more and why we have chosen this amazing team for our fundraising pack.
How can we help the Southern Koala Rescue, we asked Mish some very important questions:
QUESTION: How important is it that Australians do something to help save our Koalas?
ANSWER: Incredibly important, especially after the bushfires on the east coast have devastated populations and their habitat. It is now more important then ever that Australian do whatever they can in order to save the koalas we have left before it is too late.
QUESTION: Does every donation count when it comes to helping the Koalas?
ANSWER: It sure does. The more donations we get the more we can do, the more data we can gather, the more research that can happen and the more habitat that can be created and restored.
QUESTION: What do you love most about Koalas?
ANSWER: The fact that they can be quite dangerous when you initially to help them but then they learn to trust you and then you see their individual personalities come out.
QUESTION: How expensive is it for wildlife carers and organizations to care for, rescue, treat and rehome Koalas in need?
ANSWER: (Release is probably a better word than rehome because our main aim is to return all koalas back to their home territories in the wild)
A Between vet bills, formula, supplement feeds and petrol spent rescuing, transporting and collecting browse to feed koalas, carers spend thousands of their own money each year to do what they do.
QUESTION: This question is for Melissa from Lujo Home: Why have you chosen Southern Koala Rescue to raise money with this Lujo Home eco pack.
ANSWER: (Melissa) I met Mish one evening in the beginning of 2019. My father found a beautiful Koala in his backyard tree and having a swimming pool was very concerned. One phone call to Southern Koala Rescue and Mish came straight away to help this Koala and explained we were correct to be concerned due to drowning risks.
It was as great experience watching Mish and the work that the team do, taking so much time out of their own lives (and money out of their own pockets) to help these beautiful Koalas. A few weeks later we also called on Southern Koala rescue to help a heat stressed possum, whom I am pleased to report can now we seen running along our fence at night with a baby on her back!
Having been so saddened from the news of the bushfires in the eastern states and the effect on the Koalas in the area it really hit home how we can all help the native wildlife.
