New Sign Goes Straight to the Heart of Koala Country

Article excerpt


WIDGEE'S Koala Action Group was thrilled to see the latest signage now on display in Webb Park.

Erected the previous week, the sign was provided by Gympie Regional Council using photos supplied by Annie Longmore.

It also includes detailed information on koalas' habits and habitat, much of it provided by Gympie Koala Action Group and through liaison with various local groups and studies carried out at USC.

It's a positive and practical way for everyone to learn about these delightful animals, right here in Widgee, the heart of koala country.

Inquiries Kath O'Donnell 5484 0089. To report injured native animals or birds, phone ANARRA on 5484 9111.

Besides the scarves & beanies, they'll be adding socks, gloves, leg warmers and whatever else they can find a pattern for.

Inquiries president Judy Houben 5484 0247 or 0466 403 522.
