Koala Foundation haalt A$ 3860 op!
13 January 2016
Thanks to all the wonderful people who donated to our crowd-funding project. We raised $3860 which exceeded our original target of $2700 achieved within such an amazingly short time. The extra funds will go into tree planting projects in the rivers and creeks around the You Yangs, so that Clancy's kids have somewhere to go in future heatwaves and droughts. More information to come on how we progress this special project.
The Koala Clancy Foundation is a not for profit incorporated association set up to support the wild koalas of the Western Plains of Victoria, particularly around the You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges west of Melbourne.
The Foundation began in July 2015 in response to a 46% decline in koalas in the You Yangs over the seven years from 2007 to 2014. The foundation takes over and supports the conservation and research work of Echidna Walkabout Nature Tours, a social enterprise nature tour operator.
Echidna Walkabout will continue to be the main contributor and supporter of the foundation. We welcome other corporate involvement and sponsorship of the Koala Clancy Foundation inc.
Inspiring travellers and local communities to help ensure a future for wild koalas
Dear Walkabout crew
Thankyou so much for your donation to Koala Clancy's safety net campaign! We like to think of it as a Christmas present to you and Clancy - Clancy gets a safety net, and you get great Koala Karma!
We hope you have a wonderful festive season and hope you can spend some time in nature - we certainly will be.
We are feeling so positive about the future for Clancy and his community. The special Clancy enclosure is in the hands of a fabricator right now. We will send you pictures when it is complete!
With great supporters like you on the side of wild koalas, we can make great things happen!
All the best, Janine and all the team at Echidna Walkabout and the Koala Clancy Foundation
