We’re committed to protecting koala habitat and restoring their homes across Australia through our Wild Futures work.
The Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) was once common and widespread throughout the eucalypt woodlands and forests of eastern Australia.
Yet despite their iconic status a number of factors – including habitat clearing, hunting, natural disasters and disease – led to a substantial population and distribution decline post European settlement.
In New South Wales, Queensland and the ACT, koalas are now listed as vulnerable to extinction with many populations persisting in fragmented and isolated habitats, and are increasingly threatened by further habitat loss, modification and fragmentation; vehicle collisions; dog attacks; disease; prescribed burns and wildfires; droughts and heatwaves; and climate change.

We’re working with NRMA Insurance to protect and restore Koala Habitat across Queensland and New South Wales.
You can see their Koala hub here, and be sure to watch the video below which introduces NRMA Insurance’s commitment to protecting and restoring Koala homes.
