I was rescued in January 2018, when I was found alone in the middle of a busy road. I was born with hip dysplasia and have trouble jumping like other koalas, so I am a permanent resident here at Friends of the Koala alongside my BFF Ivy

In July 2023, rescuers saved my mum Gidja after she suffered a severe head injury. I was still riding on her back when they found her. Her injuries required several months of care, and she stopped producing enough milk for me.

When I was only 8 months old and weighed 730 grams, I fell from a tree and got separated from my mother. Luckily, I was unharmed by the fall, but I had fallen onto the road and mum was high in a tree. The rescuers wanted to reunite us, but the location was difficult, and they couldn’t capture my mother.

A member of the public rescued me when they found me alone at the base of a tree. I was only 10 months old and too young to be separated from my mum. Without her, I had been struggling for a while and was
malnourished and dehydrated...

! was rescued in September 2022 after a truck hit my mum. I am now full time in Koala Kindy and my best friends are Magnus and Rafa. Even though I am the smallest in care, I am usually found at the top of the ladder. Soon I will head off to a plantation, where I can explore the wild

My mother was hit by a car in August 2023 and taken to North Coast Emergency Vets. I was in my mum’s pouch at the time of the accident and miraculously was unharmed, unfortunately my mum’s injuries were
severe, and she had to be euthanized.

I was rescued in May 2020 after my mum abandoned me in a cow paddock. I have mild hip dysplasia, which means I cannot jump and struggle to climb. The likelihood of me surviving in the wild is slim, so I call Friends of the Koala home!

I came to Friends of the Koala in November 2021 from Larnook. I was a young joey who suffered from mild dehydration. I was very active at home-care and couldn’t wait to join the crew in Koala Kindy. After loving care and holidaying in the Kindy Plantation, I was released back into the wild.

I came to Friends of the Koala after being rescued from the devastating fires in Whiporie, NSW, in 2020. My health improved, and I made a full recovery thanks to the expertise of the veterinary team. I was released back into the wild and have now been spotted with a joey of my own!

I was a pouch young joey that may have been abandoned by my mum when I was rescued in October 2021. When I was big enough for release, it took me longer than most to understand that I needed to find my own food in plantation. I really did love being fed easy fresh leaf in the FOK care centre. After a few failed attempts I am now out living a happy wild life.

After my mother was hit by a car, I was lucky to be protected in the pouch and rescued. I was only five months old at the time and spent over 7 months in FOK Koala Kindy, learning all the skills I would need for the wild. I thrived in care, growing strong and healthy. Thanks to the dedication of my carers, I was fully vaccinated and successfully released in January 2023.

Why adopt a koala?

Did you know?

Koalas are on the brink of extinction.

PLEASE HELP US ENSURE THEIR SURVIVAL!

Scientists forecast koalas will be extinct in New South Wales, Australia by 2050 unless there is significant action to prevent the loss of their habitat.

Devastating bushfires in 2019/2020 damaged their native environment and killed at least 6,000 koalas in New South Wales alone.

Despite these tragic events and the declining number of koalas, there is hope… with the right conservation efforts, we can save and even repopulate this species.

When you adopt a koala through Friends of the Koala, you directly support the action needed for our precious koalas to survive.
