Koalas are very contrary animals! They are not bears, they are ‘marsupials’ - animals who carry their young in a belly-pouch, and baby Koalas are called Joeys. Koalas are native to Australia and they don't drink ('Koalas' is actually the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders' word meaning 'no drink'), and the food they eat, gum leaves, are poisonous! Laws forbid them from being kept as pets anywhere in the world because of their diet, still, there is little point as they sleep up to 22 hours a day!
There used to be millions of Koalas and its thought could be as few as 43,000 left today. Despite being ‘vulnerable’ to extinction there aren’t any laws in force protecting their environment although many are trying to help.
Your band creates jobs for the artisans who made it, and jobs for people who planted your trees; your trees provide a home for animals & recycle CO2 to combat global warming. We can't do this without you!
