KOALAS, IT'S THE
Last Friday we launched a campaign to fight
for the future of the adorable koala. Since then, thousands have joined
the cause. Will you help?
These iconic Australian animals are being driven from their homes – and
to extinction – by reckless and excessive tree-clearing.
In Queensland and New South Wales, laws have been overturned that protect

is already locally extinct.
Coast has already lost 80% of its koala population. And it’s going to get
even worse if we don’t act.
We have a window right now to push for change for a better future for
koalas in Queensland. That’s why today, Endangered Species Day, we’re
asking for your help by sending a KIMBY.
KIMBY, which stands for Koala In My Backyard, is a virtual origami koala
that will carry your message of hope to 12 key Queensland
representatives, who have the ability to make change on this issue.
Your personalised KIMBY will join a community of thousands

trees to keep our shared backyard safe for koalas and all other native
