 It is estimated that around 1.25 billion animals have been killed across Australia in the bushfire season of 2019/2020.   

 

The Body Shop has partnered with WWF-Australia to help restore and protect the forest homes our koalas and other Australian wildlife have lost.

 

For every Koala Headband sold, The Body Shop will donate $5 to WWF’s Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund. (RRP $12)

 

WWF’s Australian Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund will support impacted species and restore habitat by saving and growing two billion trees by 2030, creating safe corridors for koalas, and helping to implement Indigenous and rural fire management.

 

“Although it will be a long road to recovery from the bushfires, it is truly incredible to see partners like The Body Shop banding together to protect our precious wildlife and nature. This support will help us continue our efforts to restore habitats for wildlife and build a more resilient Australia in these exceptionally challenging times,” said Sharlene Dadd, Head of Impact Partnerships, WWF-Australia.   

 

Did you know? The Body Shop Australia has adopted a koala on behalf of every one of our 93 stores! By adopting koalas, we are helping to plant native trees for koalas to live in; helping to care for sick and injured koalas, and supporting efforts to stop excessive tree-clearing, to protect wildlife for the long-term.
