Friends of the Koala warmly thanks customers of the Vintage Retro & Recycled Clothing Fair which was held at the Brunswick Heads Memorial Hall over the weekend of 2-3 October for their wonderful generosity in donating over $1100 to assist their work to conserve the Northern Rivers’ precious koalas.

“Like other wildlife rehabilitation groups on the Northern Rivers, Friends of the Koala is a voluntary, not-for-profit organisation, drawn from members of the community who are passionate about the survival of the region’s wildlife and rich biodiversity,” Friends of the Koala president Lorraine Vass said.

“We operate with little financial assistance from government and depend on donations and fundraising efforts which are supported primarily by the regional community.”

Friends of the Koala has provided the Northern Rivers with koala watchdogs, tree planters and rescuer/carers for over 20 years.

If you would like to find out more about what they do and how you can help the koala conservation effort, please visit their website: or email or phone Friends of the Koala’s (24/7) Rescue Hotline: 6622 1233.
