Borobi Donates $100,000 To Currumbin Wildlife Hospital

Mascot helps save fellow koalas

Borobi Donates $100,000 To Currumbin Wildlife Hospital

Anyone who bought a Borobi plushy during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games has helped save the lives of hundreds of koalas and other creatures.

A percentage of the sales from the soft toys of the Games mascot has been donated to the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital, with organisers delivering a cheque for $100,000 on Thursday.

The cash will go towards the treatment and rehabilitation of our cuddly, native animals.

The money wasn't the only gift presented to the hospital and sanctuary.

Goldoc chair Peter Beattie said one of the Borobi statues you would have seen around our the place over the past few months, will be sent to the tourism hotspot.

Others will be shared around they city.

"There will be a Borobi here, another one will go to council where our sponsors who paid for them will have access to it and you'll probably see another one at Griffith University," he told Channel Seven.
