A portion of each sale goes to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.
Fires south of Port Macquarie have recently devastated bushland which has a high number of breeding koalas in the area. This group of koalas is one of the most genetically diverse groups in Australia and is of enormous national significance.
There are fears as many as 350 koalas have perished with approximately 75% of the fireground footprint being prime koala habitat. The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is an animal welfare, scientific research and education facility that will send out and conduct search and rescue exercises in the hope of finding surviving koalas. Any surviving koalas will be brought into the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital for treatment.
