To support the current wildlife crisis, Cooee Brands will donate 10% of their profits from the Koala Plush Pack & Koala Souvenir Pack being sold at Sydney Gift Fair to the Taronga Conservation Society.
Cooee created special packs for the upcoming Sydney Gift Fair, to help increase awareness the catastrophic bush fires and ongoing drought has had on Australian wildlife.
The fires have decimated already fragile animal populations. According to Australia’s Environment Minister, up to 30% of koalas on the New South Wales mid-north coast may have been killed during the recent bush fires.
‘Wildlife Crisis Appeal’ established by the Taronga Conservation Society aim to help restore the koala population and improve the long-term survival of koala’s re-introduced back into the wild.
Even though the bush fires across NSW are now under control, the next couple of years will be difficult for wild koalas, as it will take years to restore their habitat and improve their quality of life.
“It’s good to be able to support our wildlife. We have been supporting the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC) through our Matchmates Products, and now through our Koala Packs, we hope to donate more funds to help restoring our wildlife crisis.” said Neil Cope, Director of Cooee Brands.
