Save The Koala Month at Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital
Author: Heide Hackworth Date Posted:1 October 2020
Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital are a not for profit team of dedicated professionals and volunteers passionate about saving the lives of injured koalas and wildlife. They take in injured or orphaned wildlife with the aim of rehabilitation and release, whilst also participating in a wide variety of educational programs for students, carers, veterinary students and the public.
Koalas face many threats to their survival, including habitat loss and climate change. Though we prefer finding koalas happily snoozing in their natural habitat, it was a priveledge to be invited to the Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital, to meet the wonderful, caring staff and see our donations in action.
Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital's main goal is to treat, rehabilitate and release koalas and native wildlife that may have become injured or orphaned from their natural environment. Where appropriate, they may also need to arrange long term care for animals which can’t be released back into the wild. Adelaide Koala & Wildlife Hospital is a not for profit organisation and their treatment and rehabilitation services rely solely on the generosity and support of others.
