The Voice for Koala

Koalas are a much loved, uniquely Australian species, but right now they are in big trouble. All across Australia, predators, disease and rapid urbanisation pose big threats to koalas, whose numbers have dwindled by 90 per cent since European settlement. nationwide.

In Queensland, more than 3/4 of viable habitat has been lost in recent decades, resulting in a critical situation for the state’s koalas.

The Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc was formed in 2012 to be a voice for this much loved Australian animal. We are working to help stem the rapid decline of wild koala populations across the state, and to help find sustainable solutions to ensure a promising future for koalas.

We invite you to join us in working to create koala-friendly communities across Queensland, characterised by a proactive, collaborative and humane approach to koala conservation efforts.  There are many ways to get involved to help save this Aussie icon.
