WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
"Friends of the Koala’s holistic approach to koala conservation is something IFAW champions [because we share the belief that koalas are ambassadors for Australian wildlife. When we protect them and their habitat, we give countless other animals the chance to thrive.]"
- International Fund for Animal Welfare
"Friends of the Koala in Lismore is [already] doing a herculean job caring for sick and injured koalas."
"With koalas recently being listed as Endangered under our national environment law, the life of every individual koala matters. To see them here in care at Friends of the Koala, happy and healthy, really does give me hope for a better future for them. "
