Adopt

Adopt a koala and know that your contribution helps us care for and protect koalas so they can stay wild.

Each adoption helps support Port Stephens Koala’s conservation work, protecting habitat, preserving food supply and ensuring the safety of Australia’s most loved marsupial.

Adoptions cover the costs associated with medical treatment, food and accommodation of a koala while it’s in care.

What does my adoption pay for?

Your annual $50 contribution helps with specialised treatments, tests and medications. It also goes toward the costs of the Rescue Ambulance and costs associated with gathering gum leaves.

Who is an adoption suitable for?

Anyone, anywhere, anytime! Adopting a koala makes an excellent gift for birthdays and anniversaries as well as other special occasions. It can also be used for prizes, fundraising and ‘in memoriam’ gifts instead of flowers. As your Adoption Certificate is emailed to you, it’s a quick and easy way of sending a thoughtful gift.

What do I receive?

You receive a personalised virtual (non-physical) Adoption Certificate featuring your chosen koala and a short background story about them. Every 3 months you’ll receive an e-news update with new photos and videos.

Can I take my adopted koala home?

No. Adopting a koala is a symbolic gesture of your support for wild koalas.

How long until I receive my Adoption Certificate?

We aim to email them within 48 hours, however during busy periods it may take a day or two longer. Please check your junk or spam folder before contacting us. If you didn’t receive a confirmation email, it’s likely your email address was entered incorrectly.

Can I call you with a question about adoptions?

Yes, you can call the number to enquire about adoptions. Please contact us by email: adoption1@portstephenskoalas.com.au or for non-adoption enquiries use the contact us page.
