Following the 2019/20 black summer fires in Port Macquarie and Australia, KCA received donations through a Go Fund Me® campaign. These funds will be used to develop the world’s first Wild Koala Breeding Program. Until now, Koalas have never before been bred for return to the wild.
The ambitious plan is to develop a conservation facility that will breed and release 30 joeys per year, creating a blueprint for organisations across Australia to follow suit. This will start to reverse the trend of declining koala populations and loss of biodiversity.
