Over 90,000 new trees for koalas in 3 years



Following the Commonwealth’s decision earlier this year to upgrade the conservation status of koalas from vulnerable to endangered under national law, New South Wales followed suit, up-listing the koala from vulnerable to endangered under the State’s Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. 

“The partnership between NRMA Insurance and Conservation Volunteers Australia through the Seeds of Change project has helped create a more resilient future for our iconic species giving them the best chance of survival into the future.”

Our Seeds of Change project and the impact on koalas

  • Extending, creating and strengthening primary koala habitat and corridors​
  • Directly planting over 90,000 trees across Queensland and New South Wales​
  • Every koala food tree we plant contributes to a safer future for not only the Koala but other threatened species
  • Seeds of change not only in the landscape, for koalas and their wild neighbours, but in peoples’ hearts and minds
  • Expanding working relationships with community and state government organisations to benefit future koala projects and threatened species conservation work​
  • Over 18,500 people reached online and in-person (educated and upskilled) – beating our target of 15,000 by 23%)
  • More than 45 threatened species populations benefiting from habitat conservation and restoration
  • Over 200 Nature Stewards engaged through on-ground community planting and online activation

Flood Recovery Work


Flood destruction was massive right across the region in March 2022 and each site was affected to varying degrees. After newly planted seedlings were torn down by the rushing flood waters, Conservation Volunteers Australia and our brilliant volunteers didn’t waste time and had plants back in the ground and growing again within a month.
