Save the Koalas

Australia has been ravaged by wild fires for weeks since the start of their 2019-2020 summer season. Millions of acres have been burned, at least 15 people have died, and countless animals are now left without homes. I’m no expert on this subject and I’m not pretending to be, but I am an animal lover. The Australian koala foundation estimates that there could be as little as 100,000 koalas left in the wild (potentially less), and these fires are picking at that number minute by minute. Currently koalas are listed as vulnerable by the Australian government, but many experts believe they should upgraded to critically endangered in certain regions. 

Me being from a small town in the US and being about 10,000+ miles away, I feel pretty helpless in this situation. I feel like I’m watching one of my favorite animals go extinct right in front of my eyes, and I hate this feeling. I’m not sure of exactly what the right move to do is but I want to help if I can and a fundraiser for a organization that knows everything there is to know about Australian wildlife seems like a good place to start.

I’m asking friends family and anyone really, that if they see this to join me and try to help if they can. I know koalas are not the only species affected by these fires. Hundreds of other species and humans have been devastated but koalas seem to be one of the most helpless in this situation. Therefore I would like any money that this receives to go right to a foundation devoted to maintaining and advancing the livelihood of the koala.

If you got this far thank you for your time. I really do appreciate it. I understand not everyone can donate but if you see this pass it along. The more people know, the more of a chance a difference can be made. Also, if anyone has more information that they would like to share for this subject matter please don’t hesitate to reach out. Thank you again, now let’s help some koalas!

Much love,
