Dare to care - becoming a koala crusader

PRESENTED ON FEB 28, 2018
IN SUNSHINE COAST @ VOL 25

Meghan Halverson is an artist and passionate community activist who is currently leading the not-for-profit group Queensland Koala Crusaders. Her background spans science and the arts in nursing, midwifery, theatre, photography and film-making. This has provided her with a broad platform from which to help others and to inspire through creativity. Tragedy struck her family just over 3 years ago and this has re-directed her vision and focus.  She dares to dream whilst “planting” the seed that we all can make a difference for a more connected and collective world.
