Earth Hour will be celebrated a little differently this year as we all strive to control the spread of COVID-19. Looking for positive and safe ways we can stay connected is more important than ever while we practice physical distancing to protect vulnerable members of our community during the coronavirus crisis.

Unified in a common goal to protect threatened and endangered wildlife, Koala and WWF have been in partnership since August 2017. The partnership aims to inspire and educate Koala’s customers about the work of WWF to protect threatened and endangered wildlife. The sale of each Koala sofa helps contribute to WWF-Australia’s work on marine turtles in the Great Barrier Reef. Reports have revealed that increasing temperatures in the northern Great Barrier Reef are turning populations of marine turtles almost completely female. Through Koala’s support, WWF is trialling practical methods to cool the sand temperature of green sea turtle and hawksbill turtle nests to help mitigate the impacts of climate change on turtle populations.
