Across Queensland's Koala Coast, the tree-clearing has become so severe that over 80% of 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. We must act to protect them now, or they could disappear in a matter of decades.
Adopt today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about koalas through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for koalas.
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.
