The Gold Coast supports some of the most important koala habitat and populations in South East Queensland. These populations occur in City and State managed reserves, large privately owned parcels of rural land, and urban and peri-urban areas of the city.
Across Queensland koala numbers continue to decline as a result of habitat loss, dog attacks, road fatalities and disease. Learn about koalas, the threats facing them, our conservation efforts to save them and what you can do to help koalas on the Gold Coast.
During this period the movement of koalas increases as juveniles disperse in search of their own home range and adults seek a mate. The increase in movement also raises the chance of harm. Hear from Currumbin Wildlife Hospital's Dr Michael Pyne, and Wildcare Australia's Heidi Cuschieri and learn how you can help save koalas during this time.
