Community Mascot Program

The Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games mascot, ‘Borobi’ the world’s only surfing koala was introduced to the world on 4 April 2016, the date marking just two years to go until the Games.

The fact that Borobi is a very unique and loveable, blue koala lent itself to a great opportunity for an organisation to benefit from his popularity. That’s where the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital Foundation (CWHF) comes in.

For every sale of the plush, cuddly Borobi you are sharing the dream and contributing to the delivery of koala treatment and rehabilitation services undertaken at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.

A percentage of funding from sales also helps towards educating the community on habitat conservation and protection right across the Australian koala corridors. This includes the planting of many hectares and tens of thousands of eucalypt gum trees for Borobi and his koala friends to eat.
