In a few days I will be traveling to Carlsbad, California. It is such a beautiful place. When I'm there, I'm really looking forward to visiting the San Diego Zoo, which is not too far from Carlsbad. In preparation for my trip, I have done a lot research about this zoo. One of my favourite ' land animals ' is the Koala. There are some Koala in the San Diego Zoo. I've never seen one up close before and I'm super excited to have this opportunity.
As I'm working on building my Activism in a Box Toolkit, I know that people have different interests. My focus is mostly on the oceans and endangered marine life, but it is important to highlight other animals as well.
Koalas are such amazing creatures and they are on the endangered list. They have very sharp claws and should be treated with respect. They will not hurt anyone unless seriously provoked.
Here are some tips to save these fluffy creatures:
Tip 1: Avoid buying eucalyptus products.
The koala spends most of time eating eucalyptus. They also depend on these trees to give them shelter and hide themselves from dingos. Without the eucalyptus tree, the koalas will cease to exist. Please don't buy these products in order to help keep koalas alive.
Tip 2: Donate to a koala foundation.
This may seem like a small thing to do, but it will make such a huge difference. If you donate a dollar or 50 dollars, your contribution will still make an important difference.
Tip 3 : Support the building of koala bridges in Australia.
So many koalas die each year from being hit by cars. If we support the people who build bridges for koalas, we increase the survival rate of this little grumpy fluff balls.
For our Oceans, sharks and koalas. Thank you for reading today's blog.
