How can you help to save the koala?


Join our Adopt a Koala program

Imagine adopting your very own koala! Thanks to this program, koalas in captivity are now able to help save their cousins in the wild. For as little as $20 a month you can adopt a koala and in doing so help to save Australia's wild koala population. For more information click here. Our Adopt a Koala program is tax deductible in Australia and the USA.


Plant a tree in Harrold's forest

Harrold's Forest has been created in honour of a brave koala called Harrold, who was killed by a domestic dog in Noosa, Queensland. By planting trees in his forest, you can help replace koala habitat, 80% of which has been destroyed since white settlement in Australia. Whether you plant 1 tree or 500, you will have made a difference to the long term preservation of the wild koala. To go to Harrold's homepage, please click here.
