“For example, there was around 200 metres of panel left over from our temporary coolroom. These panels are fully insulated and will form a great base for the shelters,” says Jason.
James Leonard from, Dutch Thunder Wildlife Shelter, says that over the past few years, there has been a huge increase in the number of koalas dying in the local area – mainly from sarcoptic mange.
“We’ve had over 100 koalas infected in the last 12 months – that’s an average of one every four days.
“With the number of cases increasing each year, there are concerns that we may lose the local koala population. “We’d love for the community to get behind the project, either by donating their time or materials to build more shelters,” says James.
