Over the weekend 14-15 September, some 2000 visitors travelled to Rottnest Island to join in the birthday party for the Rottnest Island Quokka.
The birthday celebrations included the handing over of a $10,000 cheque from the Margaret River Chocolate Co to the Rottnest Foundation to support research and conservation of the much loved Quokka. The money is raised from the sale of ‘Chokka the Quokka’ merchandise, including chocolate Quokkas and Quokka t-shirts.
The Rottnest Foundation would like to thank the Margaret River Chocolate Co. for their generous support. To date they have donated $20,000 to the Rottnest Foundation to support Rottnest Quokka conservation.
