Volunteer rehabilitators operate a 24 hour rescue service for sick, injured and orphaned koalas. Koalas are cared for in home care or at the Koala Care Centre on Rifle Range Rd, Lismore, NSW. Critically ill koalas are transferred to the Australian Wildlife Hospital in Beerwah, QLD.
A native plant nursery is attached to the Care Centre providing koala food trees for free to local landholders. The proceeds from other native plant sales go towards the cost of koala care.
Friends of the Koala plays an active role in promoting habitat restoration in the Northern Rivers Region. This includes encouraging landholders to commit to new plantings and maintaining and looking after remnant vegetation.
The group supports research, in particular in the prevalence of disease in koala populations and in mapping current koala populations and their distribution.
There are lots of way that you can help FOK continue its ongoing care of koalas.
Very sad situation for this little boy.
Look who's popped by for a visit! Diego was released a few months ago and life in the wild seems to be good for him. He's a bit bigger than the last time we saw him and looks great.
Friends of the Koala are looking for leaf collectors to provide food for sick koalas at the Koala Care Centre, next to Southern Cross Uni.
