Last year we experienced the worst bushfire disaster in Australian history, fuelled by consecutive record-breaking summers and severe drought. These catastrophic summer bushfires impacted more than 3 billion animals - among them over 6,000 koalas that sadly perished in the flames. Some of our last remaining populations are now officially extinct.
Koalas were already clinging to survival before these fires. Excessive deforestation for agricultural and urban development as well as dog attacks and car strikes have pushed these Aussie icons to the brink of extinction.
Donate today to show that extinction is not an option.
We're launching our 'Koalas Forever' program which has the ambitious goal - to double koala numbers along our east coast by 2050 and, in doing so, pull the precious populations we have left back from the brink.
By working together, we can turn the tide for koalas, benefit other priority species impacted by the fires and regenerate and protect key habitat areas.
Your donation today will help kick-off our Koalas Forever program, starting with top priority actions to:
This is just the beginning of the impact you'll have for our koalas. Future stages will include:
This is a turning point for koalas. We've lost a lot, but we haven't lost them all yet. It's not too late. Together we can tackle the koala extinction crisis head-on, to save as many vital koalas as we can, and to double their numbers by 2050.
