Adopt Peace & Harmony
Peace and her beautiful joey Harmony live in the serene and semi-rural suburb of Brisbane West. Brisbane West is renowned for its quiet atmosphere with an abundance of acreage properties. However, like any residential suburb, comes the roaring of cars and barking of dogs, one of the biggest threats to koalas. Over 4000 koalas are killed each year by cars and dogs and it is important to recognise the potential risk our pets pose to wildlife, in particularly Koalas and their joeys, just like Peace and Harmony. Koalas are non-aggressive animals and struggle to comprehend aggressive behaviour, making them highly vulnerable to the attack of dogs. Like koalas, dogs can be protective and territorial and due to the mass amounts of habitat clearing, koalas enter backyards and trees of residential properties in search for food. Adopt Peace and Harmony today to raise awareness of the threat cars and pets have on Koalas and remind the community to ensure koalas are kept safe from these harms.
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.
