This morning I attended a NaturallyGC tree planting day in Burleigh. During this event volunteers planted 1000 trees for the local Koala population. There are hundreds of species of eucalyptus trees. But Koalas only eat around 50 of these species. They use other eucalyptus trees for resting. Did you know that an adult Koala eats 200-500 grams of leaves each and every day. I was great to not only see so many volunteers helping out but also Cr Pauline Young. It was fantastic to hear her enthusiasm about Burleigh's local Koala population and cleaning up litter.
