Join me today in becoming a Koala Hero by supporting the #KoalaComeback Campaign! This powerful image, called ‘Survivor’ comes from photographer @DavidYarrow, who has launched the campaign with @wild.ark to raise $2 million to support recovery efforts in Australia. Make a small donation (see link in bio for @DavidYarrow) to receive and share a digital print and help make this campaign go viral. Fifty percent of the proceeds raised through this campaign will be directed to @EarthAlliance ’s Australia Wildfire Fund, and WildArk will use the remaining donations to support local organizations working on wildlife rehabilitation and habitat restoration. Wildlife experts estimate that more than a billion animals have been killed, including up to 30 percent of the koala population living in New South Wales. This is particularly devastating for the country with highest rate of mammalian extinctions on Earth. “‘Survivor’ portrays the heartbreaking bleakness of this crisis, but it also serves as a symbol of hope for the future; the solidarity behind this effort has been inspiring,” said WildArk CEO John Hardman. “The koala, as an iconic Australian animal, represents all of the wild places in need of restoration. Supporting species rehabilitation and habitat restoration on Kangaroo Island and throughout New South Wales and Victoria will be essential for the koala recovery process and for the thousands of other species who are represented in these targeted areas.”

Initially, in September 2019, bushfires started in some regions of New South Wales, Australia

Instantly, the fires got out of control and started spreading beyond the forest area. By November, catastrophic fire danger was declared in the Greater Sydney region. However, the most damage happened in New South Wales. A huge part of the land was burnt and wildlife was affected. People lost their lives and homes.

 Therefore, Chris Hemsworth and his family have been actively donating and participating in rehabilitation

After the devastating fires, Chris Hemsworth pledged to donate a million dollars for the rehabilitation. In regard to that, he urged his followers to help him in this cause. He said:

“Like you, I want to support the fight against the bushfires here in Australia. My family and I are contributing a million dollars. Hopefully you guys can chip in too. Therefore, I’ve added links to support the fire fighters, organisations and charities. During this devastating and challenging time, they are working flat out to provide support and relief.”

Recently, Chris Hemsworth visited Friends of Koala, a rehabilitation center for koalas in Australia

In an Instagram post, Chris Hemsworth shared a picture of himself holding a koala. In the caption, he wrote:

Fantastic visiting Friends of the Koala and seeing first hand the incredible work and commitment to conserving koalas and preserving and enhancing their habitat. Non profit community group run by volunteers. Rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing.

Friends of Koala aims to conserve, preserve and enhance the habitat of koalas. Similarly, they aim to contribute to Australia’s biodiversity.
