Julie Courtemanche, Sydney Campaign Manager for The Wilderness Society, visited the south coast recently. The visit was focused upon meeting local conservationists, gathering knowledge, and seeing the damage to our native forests.
As a part of the tour Ms Courtemanche paid a visit to Potoroo Palace.
Hosted by Keeper, John Marsh she met many of the native residents, including the sanctuary’s very own home-grown koala, ‘Sapphire’. She was accompanied by local campaigners Harriett Swift, Keith Hughes and Joselyn van der Moolen.
Ms Courtemanche will be considering the role the Wilderness Society can play to end the logging and create the Great Southern Forest – an area to be set aside with no logging allowed in order to save the already threatened Wildlife in the area and in particular the Koalas.
