Adopt Shadow

February 10, 2022
Australian Bush

Shadow, an enchanting wild koala, is one of Big Al’s companions, often found resting just a few trees away from her mate. Nestled within a reserve on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Shadow graces the natural landscape with her presence.

Shadow and her entire koala family, along with mothers like Muffy, Polar, and Billie and Blinky, call the reserve’s edge home. Despite the haven the reserve provides, nearby residential suburbs pose threats.

Dogs and fences cannot always deter koalas seeking food and habitat trees, leaving them vulnerable to territorial animals. At night, when koalas and other nocturnal wildlife are most active, it’s natural for koalas to move for mates and food. Suburban gardens have become integral to koala territories in numerous regions. Animal owners hold the responsibility to secure their animals diligently during the night.

Each year, over 4000 koalas lose their lives because of collisions with vehicles and encounters with dogs. It’s crucial to realise the potential danger that comes from having residential neighbourhoods close to natural reserves and koala populations.

Elevate your impact by adopting Shadow, a representative of wild koalas in reserves. Your adoption raises awareness about the threats from cars and pets to koalas. It’s a reminder of responsible pet ownership and proactive community efforts to ensure their safety.

$ 30 00 AUD

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.
