The Cans for Koalas initiative will deliver crucial funding to WWF-Australian’s Wildlife and Nature Recovery Fund which is providing ongoing care for wildlife affected by the recent bushfires.

Funds raised will help restore habitats for koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, kookaburras and other wildlife.

Recyclers returning items at any Return and Earn reverse vending machines across NSW, QLD and NT can now donate their 10c refund to the Cans for Koalas initiative. 

Return and Earn’s previous donation program, Bottles for the Bush, raised over $1 million to support the regional communities affected by ongoing drought and bushfires.

The Cans for Koalas program runs until 23 August 2020. For more information on the donation program, visit Cans for Koalas.
