Australian Geographic Society’s November – December 2023 fundraiser.

Habitat saves koalas, and planting trees creates habitat, which is why Bangalow Koalas is striving to plant 500,000 trees by the end of 2025. We’d like to help them. The NSW community group has planted 338,000 trees in four years, an achievement that saw its president, Linda Sparrow, named our Conservationist of the Year in 2022

By creating a wildlife corridor across NSW’s Northern Rivers region, Bangalow Koalas is connecting vital koala habitat, allowing koalas to move safely as they feed, reducing the main risks of disease, dog attack and vehicle strike. It’s also about planting hope – for koalas, for the planet and, in the face of climate change, for the mental health and wellbeing of our younger generations.

To reach the 500,000 target, there are still 162,000 ‘hope trees’ to plant, and Bangalow Koalas needs help to do it. That’s why the Australian Geographic Society has selected the organisation’s trees-for-hope quest as its latest fundraising recipient. 

All funds raised will be used to prepare, plant and maintain trees over the next three years in strategic locations as part of this essential wildlife corridor. Let’s support change for koalas and help Bangalow Koalas reach its target.
