Your adoption will help with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas in the Port Stephens region with a view to releasing them back into their own habitat where possible. It also assists in the preservation and expansion of this habitat as well as the research into disease, nutrition and habits of wild koalas and to increase public awareness of all aspects of the koala and its preservation.

Port Stephen’s koalas has recently had a spate of successful releases leaving only a few animals in care. If you would still like to donate please in the form of an adoption, please consider one of our recent releases below or check back soon.


In return or your $50 donation you will receive a personalised e-Certificate with your name and the name and photo of the koala which you have chosen to adopt. You will also receive updates on your koala when available.

Please note: This is a symbolic adoption or ‘foster’ program. Your donation will contribute directly to the costs of the care of the koala.
