Koalas Don’t Take Much Action, But We Did!

We came across something over the long weekend that caught our eye for a few different reasons. It’s a website geared toward saving Koalas. And it’s why we’re the proud new adoptive parents of Kirra, a joey from the Pine Koala Sanctuary in Australia.

Koalas are Awesome … and Endangered.

They’re cute, fluffy and spend an insane amount of time munching on eucalyptus leaves while watching the world go by. What’s not to like? It’s sad, though. They really never recovered from the fur trade frenzy of the 19th and 20th centuries, and now there’s even more threatening their existence. Things like logging, urban development and disease are causing the Koala population in Australia to diminish with every passing year.

We Took Action.

We like Koalas as much as the next guy, so when we came across this site we were instantly intrigued. But what we found caused us to take physical action – we adopted one! The creators of the website have done something really cool with their fundraising efforts by making it incredibly personable. They practically made it impossible not to participate. You can adopt an actual Koala, which we think is way more fun than just giving money to an organization. Or you can join the Koala Army, document a Koala spotting, shop around, and even plant a tree that will help invigorate the Koala’s natural habitat. There are so many ways to get involved, you can’t help but take action somehow.

We really think these guys are doing the fundraising thing right. So on that note … Save the Koalas!

    To Whom it May Concern,

    Hello, my name is Grace Dixon, an AP Environmental Science student in 12th grade at Marshfield High School in Massachusetts. I am currently in the middle of a 50 slide presentation on the koala bear and came across the research and amazing way to help out. I know that you all must be very busy but if there is any way that I could set up an interview with one of the koala specialists by phone in this field of research just to ask a few questions on how and why it is endangered, I would be extremely honored. It would be less than 10 minutes and would be an extreme honor. Thank you for taking your time out of your day to consider this email.

      Hey Grace, thank you for reaching out! It sounds like you have an awesome presentation going (50 slides?! Dang! Good for you!) While we would love to employ Koala Experts, Entermotion Design Studio focuses solely on website design and development. Sadly, there aren’t many koalas here in Kansas. If you’re interested in talking to someone who can help, you might want to check out Save the Koala’s website. They might be able to get you set up with a great koala expert. Here’s the link: https://www.savethekoala.com/. Good luck! We hope you get an A+.
