Moreton Bay Koala Rescue is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation involved in the direct rescue and care of injured or sick koalas across the Moreton Bay Region, including Caboolture, Redcliffe and Pine Rivers.
Our members are from all parts of the region, and reflect a growing community concern for the visibly rapid decline in our resident koala population.
Our rescue teams drive thousands of kilometres per month picking up injured or sick koalas, delivery of animals to the Australian Wildlife Hospital, transfer to carers and/or rehabilitation and release activities. Our carers are dedicated to saving the koala, giving long hours, interrupted sleep, emotional and financial investment in every aspect of care, for every animal.
It can be stressful, physically and emotionally draining work. But it also extremely rewarding – and essential work. Because if not us, who? Who can save the koala but the residents of the areas in which koalas continue to live, albeit precariously given the expansion of housing estates, influx of cars and dogs and inherent dangers to koalas?
If you cannot join us, please support us. At the very least, enter our rescue number in your mobile phone and immediately report any injured or sick looking koalas you find: 0401 080 333.
And don’t forget to report every sighting (dead or alive) to us!
