Today when I opened the mail box I saw the Port Macquarrie Gum Tips Magazine. I was so exited to open it because I was in it. When I opened the satchel I saw three magazines, one for me one for my mum and one to use at my stalls. On the front of the magazine was Kennedy Easy the koala. On the first page was Kennedy Easy's story of why he went to Port Macquarie Koala Hospital. She was found wondering through the front yards of Kennedy Drive. She was found and released the same day. In April 2007 she was attacted by a dog not too far from where she was released and bought back to Port Macquarrie Koala Hospitail. After a few weeks she was released again, but in Febuary 2008 there were reports of her sitting low in a Bottlebrush tree for two days. They checked for any injuries but she seemed fine, then they found out that she was going to have a joey. Eight years later after she and her joey had been released she was rescued again this time from busy Pacific Drive in poor condition. She had a brown coat and was underweight. Later that year they released her and haven't seen her since. YAY! Hopefully she lives a LONG healthy life.
As I kept flicking through the book I eventually found where I was in the magazine. I read through it and it said every important thing that I do and ways other people can know what I do like go on my facebook page or on my blog. I really enjoyed reading it and everything else in the magazine. I really enjoyed reading about what 8 year old Zoe Mandelson does. Zoe sells her old clothes, books and cupcakes. she has adopted eight koalas with her money.
At the end of the book there was a Koala Hospitail Activity Report. It told you when the koala came in, who it was, why they came in and the ending results. Eleven koala's died, fifteen were sitting on the road and ground and many mopre we sick and injurd. I really enjoyed everthing in the magazine.
Why not read the magazine yourself?
It has LOTS of koala information on it- I could read it over and over again! Click on the magazine cover- I am on page 10
I have adopted 6 koala's at Port Macquarie Koala Hospital- you can adopt one too! For just $35 you can help save our koala's but why not adopt one or two? Or adopt one each month? See their website
