- Just one koala in care can cost Wildlife Victoria $400 per week (including burns creams, dressings, IV fluids, food, antibiotics and general care) and rehabilitation can take many months before the koala can be successfully released back to its natural habitat.
- The recuperation and recovery of the animal victims will take many months, the recovery of their habitats, food supplies and bushland will take years.
- Each donation will make a huge difference to our capacity to get resources on the ground quickly and save as many animals' lives as possible.
The Koala: A Nation's Icon celebrates the fluffy tree-hugger that captures the affections of tourists and locals alike. There is something in the Koalas furry little face, silky ears, curious eyes and bear-like nose that touches the human spirit, appealing to the child in us all and reminding us how precious it is to be simply at peace. At the same time, we see in the Koalas struggle to survive that peace is momentary always there are obstacles, both human and natural, to overcome. This book is a celebration of an incomparable animal, a reflection on its importance as a national icon, and an appeal for further protection and conservation of native wildlife.
