Meet the Team


Queensland Koala Crusaders are very lucky to have a passionate team driving their vision forward, our organisation is fast evolving and 2021 already proves to be an exciting year ahead. We cannot thank enough the efforts from everyone involved since it's inception 11 years ago, over time they created and developed the solid foundation of a well established not-for-profit organisation which proudly continues to be a voice for the koala. And it goes without saying that without the support of our volunteers, members, supporters and donors QKC would not be able to achieve what we have done, and continue to do.
