“Great experience with this group today. Volunteer Jan came to Crafers to check our resident koala who appeared to have an eye injury. Turns out the injury was an old one and the koala was very healthy. Jan willing shared a huge amount of information about koalas with us. We now know many ways of identifying whether a koala is sick or not and will share this with our neighbourhood. Thanks so much for all your work.”
