Mrs. Robinson will be presented with a Koala Habitat Atlas Map of her surrounding area. Deborah believes the map will justify Mrs. Robinson’s argument in her bid to not only protect her personal property from fragmentation, but to protect the immense amount of Koala habitat in surrounding areas which are under considerable threat from powerlines and urban expansion. Ms. Tabart – The Koala Woman – says this is a classic example of where Government maps are wrong and the developers are just allowed to bulldoze their way though sensitive habitats.
“Government maps say the land is not worth protecting, but I challenge Minister for the Environment; Andrew Powell, to show me why this road should go ahead” said Ms. Tabart.

Under the arrangement, Coles will retain a 25 per cent interest in the centres and will continue to manage the centres. ISPT and Coles will also look to place further properties into the joint venture as opportunities arise and Coles will maintain development control over these properties.
Coles finance director Rob Scott said the joint venture would deliver strong benefits to both parties.
“This joint venture with ISPT means Coles has secured a long-term property partner with closely aligned commercial interests,” he said.

In October, we asked our Facebook supporters what they had been doing to help save the Koala – and we were overwhelmed with inspiring responses! One girl asked her friends to donate to the AKF instead of buying gifts for her 12th Birthday. Koala carers responded with stories of their experiences looking after injured and sick animals. Volunteers revealed their obsessions with Koalas and how much time they have devoted to the cause every day. Others shared how they had individually been spreading the word and increasing community awareness through social media and self-promotion. We even received a poem expressing one family’s love for the Koalas!

Bingil Bay resident Greg James, who planted trees on the day and is also a Rainforest Rescue supporter said, “Because of the pressures around here, this is an area that needs attention, every little bit counts.
