Gidget is a beautiful wild Koala situated in the heart of the small country town Moree, New South Wales. Gidget lives out west, where it is renowned for dry and drought like conditions. Koalas primarily need to eat leaves that are lush and juicy to ensure a long and healthy life. NSW is going through its worst drought in 400 years, having an unimaginable effect on the koala, forcing koalas to search for water which is typically considered unusual behaviour. A dehydrated koala is highly vulnerable, weak and is at risk of losing its life. Gidget represents all Koalas who are struggling to find and maintain a nutritious and beneficial diet in drought stricken regions.
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! The Adopt a Koala program is not tax deductable and is a twelve month program.
