Our vision for koalas

We build community alliances in the South Gippsland region and across Victoria to support local citizens in learning how to survey and look for koalas. We believe that citizen science can lead to better understanding for land managers about where key koala populations reside, and encourage better state and federal protections for the Strzelecki koala, and koala populations across Australia.

The genetically diverse Strzelecki/South Gippsland Koala is fighting its own unique battle. As our country is increasingly more vulnerable with bushfire risks looming, climate change is the biggest threat.
