Friends of the Koala Receives Flood Grant to Help Restore Koala Habitat and Support Volunteers
Friends of the Koala, a volunteer organisation committed to conserving koalas and preserving their habitat, has received one of the recent flood grants. The floods that devastated the region earlier this year greatly impacted Friends of Koala with many of their food tree plantations and regeneration projects affected along with many volunteers.
“We are so grateful to have received the flood relief grants as it helped to support our volunteers in this difficult time and helped us restore habitats for our precious koalas,” General Manager, Silva, said.
This incredible volunteer organisation has been operating for over 35 years and is the only dedicated koala hospital in the region. With 170 volunteers, Friends of Koala aims to make a key contribution to Australia’s biodiversity.
In partnership with the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals (BCCM), G&C Mutual Bank and the Australian Mutuals Foundation, we have continued to distribute the funds as small grants to help support community groups, local charities, children’s services, sporting clubs and health providers. As more rain becomes a concern again on the east coast, our fundraising appeal for flood relief continues.
