This keen group of 7 year olds, together form the aptly named ‘Koala Class’, and in response to the recent bush fires they created a large poster to draw attention to the plight of our Aussie animals and loss of habitat.
The students kindly collected donations to assist with fire rehabilitation projects such as setting up of water stations and reforestation. The generous donors were the very lucky recipients of a ‘Thank You Koala’ – made from reusing old corks – and just how cute are they!!!
This donation will be going towards our R&S Mini Grants 2020. These grants are specifically awarded to scores of small projects that make a difference for animals, people and the environment. We will be inviting people to apply for a Mini Grant from May 1st 2020 and will especially be looking to support projects that will help our koalas, gliders, bees, bats, birds and bandicoots – and all biodiversity – through wildlife care, tree plantings, food drops, and other habitat needs.
Have you or your school got an idea that may assist our fire and drought affected wildlife and communities?
Start planning your project and be sure to submit your application via our website from May 1 2020!! See our website for details where you can also check out some of the inspirational projects from last years winners as well. https://rootsandshoots.org.au/minigrants/
Danke Koala Class!! We look forward to sharing our projects with you shortly.
