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.

Currently the City has Koala Conservation Plans for important koala populations in Elanora-Currumbin Waters, East Coomera and Burleigh Ridge. The conservation plans include programs and actions to help inform the community about threats to our local koala population and engage local residents in conservation efforts.

Discover more about the local koala population and learn how you can take simple measures to support koala conservation on the Gold Coast by registering as a Koala Friend.

Residents within the Koala Conservation Project areas of Elanora or Currumbin Waters, Coomera Waters and Burleigh Ridge can join the free, local Koala Friends Program at
