Tree planting with my friend Ruby.
Koala Clancy Foundation are planting trees in koala habitat in the You Yang's Victoria. I go every second Sunday and help them plant seedlings. Since June, we have planted more than 800 trees. They hope to plant 2,000 by the end of August.
The dark line of the Little River in this location has no tree cover whatsoever. That's not natural. This would once have been prime koala habitat.
Today my friend Ruby and I went to the You Yang's to plant for Koala Clancy. When we arrived it was so very cold. We were planting on the other side of the river. Luckily I had gumboots so I could cross. Two or three other people had gumboots too. The water nearly went all the ways up to my gumboots. Every time someone crossed I would have to get the gumboots off that person and then walk back again and give them to some one else. We planted thirty one trees. That is the most trees that we have ever planted.
When we went koala hunting we found Clancy first. He wasn't doing anything exciting. the only thing he was doing was sitting in the tree eating some leaves. As we left we walked right in to another koala called Kiki. She was in a tree very close to Clancy. Kiki was very active until some hikers came and she stopped and went to bed. We said goodbye to Kiki asnd walked back to have lunch.
When we got back Janine started a game where you have to act like a koala because they have very good hearing and a great sence of smell. Janine got leaves and her phone, she handed the leaf out to everyone. you had to smell in and guess what type of tree it is from. then she played a recording of birds and you had to guess how many birds you thought there were.
after the game we went home.
