The Koalas (CTC) – Doco Club

Tuesday, June 25 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

The Koalas takes audiences on a journey into the lives of individual koalas, led by charismatic characters – Wonnie, Bexley, Tom, Baz, Coral and adorable joeys Hope and Pala.

As these stories unfold, we witness the unique characteristics of koalas, their bond with their young, and the wildlife carers that they come into contact with. These seven emerge as ambassadors for all koalas facing threats to their ongoing survival. 

Why is the koala facing extinction when governments are announcing new strategies to protect them? Scientists identify the main culprit behind the alarming drop in koala populations is habitat loss. How is the destruction of habitat being allowed to escalate at unprecedented rates? Are environment laws so weak that they can’t protect threatened species? 

The film celebrates resilience in the face of the challenges and invites audiences to become catalysts for change. It resonates with a powerful message: if we can’t (or won’t) save this iconic native species what does it say about us and our own future?

This very special screening will be followed by an informed discussion about issues raised about the extinction of this beloved Australian icon.

“You’ll be charmed. You’ll be dismayed. And then I bet you’ll be as angry as hell at what’s being done to koalas in your name and in your own lifetime.”

Tim Winton.
