Our Home
Of all creatures on the planet, humans and koalas have the most similar fingerprints. Making new human homes continue to destroy koala homes, as an Australian icon faces extinction. We can do better. Our planning policies should recognise relationships in nature, and put the needs of the land and native flora and fauna first. Human habitats are places we can share. And if we rebuild habitats and connections for koalas, a sentinel species, we create environments that are healthier and happier for all species. To replace a tree the size of a telegraph pole, we need to plant 2000 saplings.
