You are here:
In southeast Queensland and New South Wales, koalas are losing their homes and their lives. Across Queensland’s Koala Coast, the tree-clearing has become so severe that more than 80% of its koalas have now been lost.
Throughout eastern NSW, koalas are casualties of some of the highest tree-clearing rates in the world. Populations have declined by a staggering 42% in the past 20 years and the koala is at serious risk of becoming extinct in both NSW and Queensland.
If we don’t act to protect them now, koalas could disappear from Australia’s east coast in a matter of decades.
Your gift could help plant new trees for koalas to live in and care for sick and injured koalas, as well as support efforts to urge our governments to stop excessive tree-clearing, protecting wildlife for the long-term.
