My kinder teachers from Diamond Hills Preschool, invited me back to talk to two kinder groups. They saw me in the newspaper.
I talked about how koala's are a vulnerable species. There's not many of them left in the wild. What they can do to help our environment (pick up their rubbish so it does not go into the storm water drains to our rivers/oceans, recycle, not cut down trees, say NO to plastic bags at the shops and use recycled things.) I said that they need to call Wildlife Victoria if they see a sick or injured animal or hit one in the car. How they can ask their parents to drive slower when they see wildlife signs- especially at night and in the morning. I talked about what koala's eat and where they live. I talked about my fundraising and my Linen 4 Wildlife. I showed them pouches for wildlife.
The first time I went they kept asking about what food koalas ate so mum and I bought some koala food trees to show at my second talk. The second time I went when I asked "are there any questions?" four kids said I love Libby. They were so cute. I got a big cuddle from a little girl when she was leaving to go home.
Hopefully they listened to my message and will think more about wildlife and what they can do to help. Thank you to my teachers (Bron, Annmaree and Kim) for having me come back to my kinder and talk to the kids.
