Kiah is one of the female Koalas at Rainforestation Nature Park. She was born there 16 years ago to Harvey and Matilda. Kiah is very friendly, and especially loves belly rubs from her wildlife keepers! Most koalas don't like their bellies being touched, but Kiah is definitely one of a kind. Check out the video that's currently going viral with more than 4 million views! You can visit Kiah along with her family and friends and lots of other cute animals at Rainforestation Nature Park in Kuranda.
Australians have embraced recycling, with more than nine out of ten people recycling at home. But as the industry continues to grow and expand, the range of products and materials you can recycle continues to grow. In this two-part series we showcase 14 items you can recycle - but probably aren't.

Mobile for a Meal

In January and February, Mobile Muster donated the value of a meal to OzHarvest, Australia's leading food rescue agency, for each mobile phone that was recycled. Stay tuned next month when we share the results. You can send your old phones for recycling any time of the year; simply pick up a reply-paid satchel at your nearest Australia Post for each phone you find lying around your home, school or business.
