We're so sad to hear the news about Paul O'Grady's passing.  He did so much for people and animals, both in Britain and around the world.  He was a true gentleman, compassion, kind, caring and funny.  All our thoughts are with his family, people and animals, his friends and of course everyone at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.  They have set up a Tribute Fund for Paul O'Grady which you can donate to here.  Rest in peace, Paul, and thank you for all you did to bring animals to us on our screens and for all you did for them.  You will be so missed.

If you want to help koala conservation in Australia, please take a look at the IFAW Appeal for koalas to help Bangalow Koalas create wildlife corridors.   FIND OUT MORE from our sister site, Take Action for Wildlife Conservation.


There's big news from Longleat Safari Park!  

Longleat has teamed up with the Southern Australian Government and Cleland Wildlife Park to launch an international and awareness programme for Australia’s most iconic species –  the koala!

Six Southern koalas will be heading to the UK from Adelaide to join Longleat.  The safari park will act as aEuropean hub for the newly-created International Koala Centre of Excellence (IKCE). 

The IKCE is working to enhance the management and conservation of koalas to ensure their long term future in the wild.

The koalas are coming in the Spring of 2019.

Meantime, there's plenty going on at Longleat in Wiltshire.   Find out where it is here
