Koalas are one of the world's most beloved species yet their populations in eastern Australia are in free fall. Around Bega in southern NSW there used to be so many koalas that pelts were exported to Europe. Now there are less than 100.
The Northern Hairy-nosed Wombat is one of the world's most critically endangered species. It is the largest herbivorous burrowing mammal in the world and disappeared rapidly after the introduction of sheep, cattle and rabbits into Australia, due to competition for grass (their nutrition is based on almost 100% grass).
Australia is blessed with some of the world's best natural oils. The Australian Natural Soap Company's range of 60-plus products makes use of these natural scents and is free from artificial fragrances or colouring.
