Adopt a koala

Adopt a Koala Certificate

Did you know you can become a Koala Parent by adopting your favourite koala? There’s no better way to show your support for Koalas in the Northern Rivers!

Friends of the Koala receives no ongoing government funding. Your adoption helps with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas and releasing them back to the wild where possible. By adopting a koala, you are also contributing to habitat restoration in the Northern Rivers region and research into the prevalence of disease in koala populations.

All adoptions packages are a single payment and last for 12 months from the date of purchase. You can choose to renew your adoption after this time and continue your support of our vital work. 

You are able to purchase an adoption package as a gift on behalf of a friend or loved one!
