24th September National Save the Koala Day

No birthday, but a day where the aim is to raise awareness in Australia of the plight of the koala and to educate people as to its vulnerability. During September which has been designated as Koala Month and in particular on the last Friday in September which is Save the Koala Day, the Australian Koala Foundation wants the Australian Government to acknowledge that currently koalas are not protected under national laws. There are as few as 43 000 koalas left and the Foundation wants the species listed as "vulnerable".

A good place to find out about koalas is in Dr Mark Norman's Koalas: The Real Story.
