Here’s what I told Premier Gladys Berejiklian when she texted me about her work at the Koala Hospital

On Saturday, which was World Environment Day, I spoke at the #KoalasNeedTrees rally.

The turnout was incredible – you can see photos here.

If you couldn’t make it, you can still watch the speech I gave here.

In the speech, I talked about:

🐨  What I wrote back to Premier Gladys Berejiklian after she texted me about her work at the Koala Hospital
📢  How the support of koala advocates influenced Liberal MP Catherine Cusack to cross the floor over koala protection
🌳  How influential community groups like Friends of Kalang Headwaters are
❤️  Why we need to listen to First Nations people and learn from how they protect Country, including koalas
❓  Why offset schemes are deceptive and don’t work
👥 Why your voice is critical to keep pressure on the NSW Government and hold them to account
