On the 26th of this month, Gecko (The Gold Coast and Hinterland Environmental Council) is proud to present some very well known speakers at our ‘Nature Talks’ evening – who will share with us the plan for turning around the fate of these beloved marsupials.
The topic of the presentation will be: The Koala Conservation Plan for Elanora-Currumbin Waters prepared by the City of Gold Coast in partnership with Currumbin Sanctuary Wildlife Hospital and Wildcare Australia.
John Callaghan from the City of Gold Coast will outline the important role of all local residents in helping to protect the local koala population.
Karen Scott (President of Wildcare Australia Inc.) will be on hand to answer any questions on koala disease, signs of illness, reporting, rescue and treatments at the hospital.
With only one cub per year and the population of Koalas declining by over fifty per cent in the last three years (on the Queensland coast) it is more important than ever to show that you care about these wonderful creatures and have a Koala friendly home. Plus, you can come along to the ‘Nature Talks’ event on the 26th and let us know that you too, ? Koalas!
Time: 6.30pm for networking meet and greet. Talk begins at 7pm sharp.
Date: Wednesday, 26th of March.
Who to bring?: This talk is great for the whole family and can create future, wildlife warriors!
Where: Upstairs, Gecko Hall. Corner of Duringan St and Thrower Drive, Currumbin.
RSVP: Please RSVP for refreshment purposes.

Gold Coast City Council, through its Nature Conservation Strategy, recognises that our native wildlife is a critical asset, essential to the future environmental, social and economic sustainability of the Gold Coast.
The City is implementing a koala conservation project for the East Coomera and is preparing a Koala Conservation Plan for the Elanora-Currumbin Waters areas, in addition to a city-wide Koala Conservation Plan that will include programs to help inform the community about threats to our local koala population and engage local residents in conservation efforts.
