Our Koala Documentary is OUT NOW!

Australia’s iconic koala is on a shocking plummet towards extinction.

Within one decade our precious koalas have gone from no listing, to vulnerable, to endangered. Friends of the Koala is on the frontline of the battle to save the species.

Every Koala Counts

The documentary “Every Koala Counts” is an intimate exploration of the inspiring people who have taken a stand to save this species – past and present.

Follow the development of Friends of the Koala from its fledgling start as a group of tree planters, to battles fought to save precious habitat, to the dedicated rescue, hospital and care centre staff caring for sick and injured animals.

At the heart of the story are the koalas themselves including the adorable battler Banjo, who months after being rescued with infected wounds and covered in ticks, is ready to be released to hopefully father a new generation.

Directors: Catherine Marciniak & Annie Benzie
