Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas has strengthened its ongoing partnership with Noosa & District Landcare Group (NDLG) by extending its arms to support Noosa’s cuddliest residents through a unique fundraising initiative for the Noosa Koala Habitat Recovery Project.
During the past two years, Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas has donated more than $30,000 to the NDLG to plant trees and encourage natural diversity.
This year, Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas will donate two dollars for every day conference delegate to the Noosa Koala Habitat Recovery Project, with the goal of raising $15,000 in 2019.
Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas General Manager, Fabrice Grau, said he is delighted the resort can extend its support to the local landcare group and channel its efforts to assist in preserving the natural habitat of Australia’s national treasure.
"It is crucial we look for ways to protect the land that koalas live and plan for the future to ensure these cuddly animals are protected for generations to come,” said Mr Grau.
"The work being conducted by the Noosa Koala Habitat Recovery Project will serve as a stepping stone to promote awareness of this issue and encourage more people to get behind the movement.”
Noosa & District Landcare Group General Manager, Phil Moran, said his team are appreciative of the continued support from Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas and look forward to working together on this new project.
"Peppers will directly support the planting of more than 2,400 mainly koala trees over six hectares, which will help provide more natural habitat for koalas," said Mr Moran.
"Once rehabilitated the area will be allocated as a National Park under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 with protection and management secured into the future.”
