Help a koala at Christmas

FRIENDS of the Koala in Lismore cares for about 300 koalas annually from across the Northern Rivers.

Over the past weeks alone, 10 koalas have been brought into care.

Fundraising initiatives are a significant component of the organisation's income.

The perfect Christmas gift for the person who has everything is a Friends of the Koala Support Pack.

Rehabilitating a koala costs money…more than $20 a day for diet supplement and basic medications.

Thorough diagnostics and veterinary intervention can run into hundreds, even thousands, of dollars simply to help one koala.

Visit www.friendsofthekoala.org and click on Support a Koala.

From the photo gallery choose the koala you would like to sponsor.

A basic Koala Support Pack includes a certificate, information and a photo of the koala of your choice, and costs as little as $50.

Order by phone, post or online.

Friends of the Koala volunteers will be on duty 24 hours a day throughout the holiday season.

You can play your part in helping koalas in distress by giving Koala Support Packs as presents this Christmas.

To help the foundation phone 6622 1233, visit www.friendsofthekoala.org or call in to the Koala Care Centre on Rifle Range Road, East Lismore, for further information.
