To celebrate Koala Month, Wildlife HQ Zoo has invited everyone to get involved in some special activities while raising important funds to ensure a future for the endangered loveable national icons.
Their future lies with our children so the weekend aims at arousing their interest and awareness of wildlife conservation by introducing them to Super Koala, a cartoon character making a special appearance, who aims to raise $20,000 to plant special food trees for the koalas at Wildlife HQ.
Also on both days, the Queensland Koala Crusaders will be there to answer questions, show how you can get involved with protecting our local koalas, become a member, train as a rescuer, or help them get the much needed local sanctuary on the Sunshine Coast by purchasing a tee shirt, cap, souvenirs or even taking home your own cuddly koala.
Wildlife HQ is located on Nambour Connection Road, Woombye, home to many native and exotic creatures.
The HQ is easy to walk around with a fun train to ride, a cafe serving snacks, and you can even have lunch at the Big Pineapple next door or bring a picnic.
The event will take place on 26 and 27 September, with gates opening both days at 9am and closing at 4pm.
