Hi We raised $ 722.00 from the collection on New Years day. Our aim is to collect during holiday periods to get some funds from the visitors, and as usual the locals also give . The money is needed to cover Vet fees and medication. The Vets do a lot for free but blood tests and antibiotics and operations are expensive. At the time of collection we had a koala in care that was caught in a rabbit trap the damage that was done has so far needed 2 operations and lots of antibiotics. Sam , will need to be in care for many weeks to come with hope of release and a full recovery. We need to do ongoing collections for our koalas and are aiming at the holiday market. Cheers Lorraine.
