SAVE OUR KOALAS DAY OF ACTION
In 2021, koalas need you to be their voice. We need to tell the pollies we won’t back down until there’s no more clearing of koala habitat - for the timber industry, for new suburbs, for anything.
Join the Save Our Koalas Day of Action rally and march beginning in Hyde Park Sydney near the Archibald fountain and marching to mega-developer Lendlease’s Sydney office.
Get creative with your own placard or grab one of ours on the day. Remember to take photos and help us create a storm on social media! Last time we had #SaveOurKoalas trending so let’s make it happen again using #SaveOurKoalas and #SaveSydneysKoalas
Not in Sydney? Here's what you can do to be a part of our Day of Action:
- Stage a (COVID-safe) pop-up protest in your local area. Pick a corner of a busy intersection, your street, a park or somewhere else where you’ll be noticed with your message to Save Our Koalas! We’ll have posters you can download and print or make your own, and don’t forget to share photos and videos on social media!
- Create a storm on social media! Last time, we had #SaveOurKoalas trending on Twitter, so let's get it happening again! Take a photo or video of yourself at a pop-up protest, or print a photo of yourself with a poster at home and share on social media tagging your local MP plus Premier Gladys Berejiklian (@GladysB), Environment Minister Matt Kean (@Matt_KeanMP) and Planning Minister Rob Stokes (@RobStokesMP).
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #SaveOurKoalas plus whichever hashtags your local campaign uses.
Koalas don’t have a voice, they only have us. Let’s do it!
This is a COVID-safe event. That means a maximum of 500 people. If more than 500 people come on the day you may be asked to leave (which means you can pick a busy street corner and host a pop-up rally of your own!) You will be required to check in to assist with contact tracing should the need arise.
Remember to wash your hands before and after the event and bring your own hand sanitiser and face masks. If you don’t have any, we’ll have some available for free on the day. Always stay 1.5m away from others if you can help it.
Consider walking or cycling if you need to avoid packed public transport and don’t share food or drinks.
