ADOPT A KOALA

Koalas are heading for extinction unless urgent action is taken. They desperately need your help to survive.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR ANIMAL LOVERS 🎁

Supercharge your impact by selecting an ongoing adoption from as little as $15 per month. With an ongoing adoption you’ll receive regular email updates so you can see the difference your generous support is making.

Monthly donations make it easier to plan for the long-term, helping to keep administration costs down and providing a huge boost to vital conservation work. You’ll always be in control of your giving and can easily contact us should your circumstances change.

Save our koalas & their forest homes

From deadly disease to catastrophic wildfires, floods, and rampant deforestation - koalas have been hit from all angles. Now uplisted to ENDANGERED status along Australia's east coast, they're at a critical crossroad and urgently need your help. Without stronger nature laws and more places to call home, koala populations are on a slippery slope towards extinction by 2050 in eastern Australia. There's no time to lose. You can help turn this tragedy around by symbolically adopting a koala today. You'll be helping to protect them against deadly Chlamydia that’s decimating their populations. You’ll also help to create safe wildlife habitat corridors through protection and restoration of their forest homes. Your generosity will be a symbol of your support for conservation and animal advocacy, ensuring this much-loved Aussie icon is safe from extinction. And for each koala you assist, you’ll be helping hundreds of other native species too. If you sign-up to an on-going adoption, you'll also receive exclusive koala adoption updates throughout the year so you can see the impact you're making.
