Redland residents showed their support for local koalas at the second annual koala fun run on Sunday in Cleveland.
The animal is now officially listed as vulnerable and just over 1000 fun run entrants braved the chilly morning to show their support.
There were a range of activities planned for this weekend including the popular Redlands Koala Fun Run and habitat regeneration.
Redlands Mayor Karen Williams said the Redlands had the most significant urban koala population in Australia.
"Our Koala Weekend events are aimed at raising the profile of our much-loved iconic species and encouraging the community to do their part to save our local koalas."
The action kicked off on Saturday, with the annual Koala Community Planting between 9am and 11am at Norm Dean Park, Smith Street, Cleveland, run by the council's Bushcare team.
The event aimed to plant more than 2000 plants, including 200 koala food trees.
In the past year, Bushcare officers and community volunteers planted more than 12,000 native plants, including 800 koala food trees.
The Redlands Koala Fun Run started at 7am this morning at Norm Price Park, Redlands Showground, Cleveland.
Three circuits including the 10km, 5km and 3.5km were on offer to participants of all fitness levels.
After the run, family entertainment, fun activities and educational information continued until 11am.
