The koala is one of Australia's most loved and iconic animals, but they need your help.

The Federal Environment Minister has listed the koala as a threatened species in Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory under national environment law, and the koala is listed as a vulnerable species under State environmental legislation in Queensland. Across Queensland, koala numbers continue to decline as a result of habitat loss and increasing threats such as dog attacks, road fatalities and disease.

Discover more about the local koala population and learn how you can take simple measures to support koala conservation on the Gold Coast.
