Can this song save the koalas?
A French musician has partnered the Australian Koala Foundation in a fundraising effort to raise awareness of the plight of one of Australia’s favourite animals and to raise much needed funds to help their protection.
Mikael J Hacken wrote and composed ‘I’ve Seen Them All (The Koala’s Song)’ and all proceeds of the song’s profits will be donated to AKF to support their important work in saving the Koala and its habitat.
The song aims to highlight the dangers Koala’s face whilst providing supporters with an entertaining audio and visual experience.
“The song is wonderfully composed and is a beautiful tribute to koalas,” said chair of the Australian Koala Foundation, Deborah Tabart OAM.
“It brings to focus the threats to koalas and highlights the importance of a Koala Protection Act, which would ensure koalas and their habitat are protected by law,” Ms Tabart said.
Listeners are encouraged to download the song to support the AKF in their goal to conserve the Koala and its habitat.
