Michael Hornby, CEO, Australia Zoo Wildlife Worldwide Ltd: “Koalas: Zen in Fur is a book to be treasured. It captures magnificently the beauty of a beloved Australian native species that delights and captivates animal lovers the world over. Each image compels us, more than words ever could, to do our utmost to ensure the koala’s continued care and protection. By purchasing this book you will be assisting in this endeavor and sharing the dream of Steve Irwin, the original Wildlife Warrior.”
Each copy of the book contributes to the Australian Wildlife Hospital, a major project Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors Worldwide Ltd, for the preservation of the koala and other Australian creatures under threat.
Drawn from what the American Library Association has has named “the best collection of koala images available,” Koalas: Zen in Furconsists of 320 mostly previously unpublished photographs accompanied by descriptions of Australia’s most beloved native.
“Like a walk in the forest, the pages of this book bring us into the world of koalas. We see them at rest, at play, nurturing their young, dining on eucalyptus—most of all we are able to see the presence, groundedness, and openness in their expression.
“A welcome balance of facts, insights, and images brings an understanding of the nature and habits of koalas—but it goes much further. It awakens an emotional connection even for those of us who have never felt the softness of their fur or watched them revel in a meal of tender leaves.
“Most important this book reminds us of our spiritual connection to the koala. In the directness of their gaze, the simplicity of their lives, and the gentleness of their actions we find a model for how and who we wish to be in the world.”
