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 Stephens Koalas has successfully released koalas back into the wild, leaving fewer in care. If you would like to adopt a wild koala, please click on the koala’s photo for more information or simply Add to Basket.


In return for 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 your koalas story so far and a notification of the outcome of their treatment.

Please note: This is a symbolic adoption or ‘foster’ program. Your donation will contribute directly to the costs of the care of the koala. The koalas in our care are wild animals who are being treated to be returned to the wild. Photos and updates are not always possible due to the nature of their care but will be provided when possible.

Please note that Adoptions are not tax deductible but make an excellent gift for those who care about this Australian icon. Adoptions directly support wild koala care. Port Stephens Koalas is a registered Charity with Deductible Gift Recipient Status, so if you’d like to make a Tax Deductible donation please go to our Donate page.
