Adopt Taro

3 March 2016
Paradise Country (Gold Coast, QLD)

Taro excels at being cute and cheeky, but his greatest strength is revealed when wrestling with his Koala buddies. Taro has grown well and is housed in a enclosure amongst the other males within the Koala colony. At 3 years old, he recently weighed in at 7kgs. Taro continues to bellow like a champion, but now utilises his voice to draw the attention of nearby females. He has recently become a first-time Dad. Taro graduated to Koala photo cuddle duty some time ago and remains a cheeky favourite amongst the wildlife team. 




When you adopt a Koala, you receive a beautiful personalised adoption certificate with a photo of your Koala, a welcome letter, Koala stickers, and more. And if you are in the area you can drop in and visit the adorable Koala you adopted! *(Cost of Koala adoption does not include park admission fees).

*We cannot guarantee however, that the adopted Koala will be available for viewing on the day so it is always best to contact the zoo or park prior to your visit to avoid disappointment.

Please note: Koalas are not pets. This is a symbolic Koala adoption, or a ‘foster’ program. Your monthly donation, which is a twelve month commitment, goes towards the work of helping save Koalas in the wild; so by adopting one of these gorgeous Koalas, you will be helping their less fortunate wild cousins!
