Clip Art for Koalas
You may have heard about the devastating fires that have affected parts of NSW, Australia in the past week.
Whilst it is Spring here in the Australia, we have had unseasonally warm weather and high winds.
This past week, our TV screens were full of shocking images of wild fires burning throughout NSW bush lands many of which border suburbs. There are still direct threats to both homes and bushlands and our volunteer fire fighters have been flown in from around the country and are working around the clock.
These fire fighters are so hot, tired and exhausted they need to rest for just a minute.
Thank you to our brave heroes.
After the bush fires wipe out kilometres of bushland, the Native Animal Trust searches the chard remains of looking for animals that are injured.
At this point in time, the area has not been deemed safe enough to explore but when it is we can be sure that there will be much wildlife that needs assistance.
My friend Mel From the Pond lives not too far from the devastated area.
The Port Stephens area has been identified as one of the richest koala sites in my state, and contains prime habitat which supports one of our last viable koala populations (koala’s are currently classified as a vulnerable and rare species – this in itself is a huge concern).
Of the many eucalypt trees that grow in Australia, only a few will be suitable for koalas – you can imagine what that means when we have these horrendous bushfires. If the koalas happen to survive, they are often left struggling to find their favourite trees and leaves. While most Australian wildlife will run when they smell bushfire smoke, the slow moving koala will just move higher into the canopy of their tree.
Mel has designed this cute set of graphics that will go towards helping Wildlife in Need of Care.
100% of the profits from the sale of this set will go towards helping this non-profit organisation.
Included in this clipart set is a special badge that you can put on your blog IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO to show that you have supported the koalas. Please link back to Mel’s post if you can, so we can spread the news.
If you would like your students to learn more about Koalas, there is some excellent information on this site here.
You can purchase the set via Mel’s clip art store; Graphics from the Pond.
