PLANT & PREVENT
Keeping trees alive is as important as planting new ones. This is why we finance awareness videos on social media, to show people what we can do to minimise the impact of deforestation in our everyday lives. Along with financing tree planting projects, we also finance the protection of our newly planted trees.
Australia is the only place where koalas live.
Around 5,000 koalas in New South Wales have died in bushfires.
Australian bushfires in 2019
“Since European settlement, approximately 80% of the koala’s natural habitat has been cleared. Of the remaining 20%, little is protected and most occurs on fragmented privately-owned land.”
– Friends of the Koala
Injured koala receiving help
The bushfires in 2019 caused absolute devastation for koala population in Australia. Koalas are especially susceptible to the bushfires because they reproduce slowly. Each female can produce just one joey each year.
Unfortunately, it seems that the situation will scarcely improve without additional help. The likelihood of extinction of koalas in New South Wales has increased, because koalas barely keep their numbers up before the next bush fire occurs.
Remaining koala populations and their habitat, need to be protected urgently. By purchasing a koala Bracelet, you are joining our conservation efforts for koalas.
