Makepeace Island is throwing open its doors to host a 'Save the Koala' fundraising luncheon on 30th September 2016 as part of its critical effort to help save the Noosa region's koalas from extinction. Friday 30th September is recognised nationally as 'Save the Koala Day'. This fundraising initiative follows the recent establishment of the Richard Branson Koala Conservancy and a commitment by Makepeace Island owners, Sir Richard Branson and Brett Godfrey, to fund koala research.

The 5-year grants program will focus on mitigating koala mortality, with an emphasis on koala health, as well as investigating areas within the Noosa region, for its suitability as long-term koala refugia. One hundred percent of proceeds from the luncheon will be directed to this important work and will add to monies already committed by the owners.

Tickets are $250 each and bookings are available online at Event patrons will experience an exclusive island tour, indulge in seafood stations and wines and be entertained by XFactor stars 'Soulcutz'. Island co-owner Brett Godfrey, Queensland Environment Minister Steven Miles and koala experts Professor Peter Timms and Dr Jon Hanger will address the luncheon. Ticket holders will receive a special invitation to return to the island for an update on the program in 2017.
