Bob Hawke gives a hand to Protect our Aussie Species
As part of his 88th birthday celebrations, former Prime Minister, the Hon. Bob Hawke, has called on the Australian public to put their hands in their pockets to help the Landcare groups working to save the future of our endangered Aussie species.
In an Australian first, Landcare Australia partner, Hawke’s Brewing Co., collaborated with Madame Tussauds Sydney to remould the wax hand of former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke so that he can hold a can of his own beer, Hawke’s Lager. The birthday gift was revealed at an event to celebrate Mr Hawke’s 88th birthday in Sydney, where wax Bob and real Bob Hawke shared a cheers!
While Mr Hawke was ‘given a hand’ for his birthday, he encouraged all Australians to give him a hand by donating to Landcare Australia’s “Protect Our Aussie Species Appeal”. The appeal funds projects that help protect the future of Aussie species, like vulnerable koalas in the Port Macquarie region of New South Wales.
“I hope this gesture will help Landcare raise awareness and support to safeguard the future of Australia’s vulnerable and endangered species”, said Mr Hawke.
