Short Story

The urgent funds you give today will help Taronga address the emerging crisis, care for the rescued koalas in the Taronga Wildlife Hospitals as well as Taronga’s long-term work as we strive to turn around the trajectory of koala populations.

Before this emergency, Taronga has been building our long-term strategy to identify, connect and restore habitat for priority NSW koala populations.

The rehabilitation research we are also undertaking will improve the integration of these rescued and injured Koalas back into the wild.

Once these bush fires pass, there will still be a crisis for koalas. The next couple of years will be more important than ever for the long-term future of koalas.

Please donate today, your support at this time is more critical and urgent than ever.

Campaign Story

Rescued Koalas Now in Taronga’s Care

With bushfires threatening the Blue Mountains area and more predicted over the next week, Taronga has received 12 koalas who have been rescued by Science for Wildlife. These wild koala are directly in the path of a bushfire that is currently burning out of control across more than 140,000ha in Kanangra-Boyd National park.

The population of wild koalas are now in care at Taronga Wildlife Hospital, being monitored around the clock by vets and keepers until it is safe to release them back to the wild. 

The situation was dire for koalas – now it’s devastating. They need your help now more than ever before.

It’s difficult to digest but there’s only one thing to do and that’s to step quickly into action.

We cannot lose Australia’s iconic koala on our watch.

Please send your urgent donation today to help our iconic koalas threatened by the bushfires and restore critical koala habitat.
