Help Thirsty Koalas Devastated by Recent Fires


Fires south of Port Macquarie (Crestwood) have recently devastated bushland which has a high number of breeding koalas in the area. This group of koalas is one of the most genetically diverse groups in Australia and is of enormous national significance.

There are fears as many as 350 koalas have perished with approximately 75% of the fireground footprint being prime koala habitat.

The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital is an animal welfare, scientific research and education facility that will send out and conduct search and rescue  exercises in the hope of finding surviving koalas. Any surviving koalas will be brought into the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital for assessment and treatment.

One way to help surviving koalas and other wildlife is to provide access to water to reduce further deaths from dehydration. 

The Port Macquarie Koala Hospital would like to raise money to purchase and distribute automatic drinking stations which will assist in helping koala and wildlife survival. 

Money raised will be used to distribute the drinking stations in the fire affected region. If enough money is raised, it will distribute to other significant koala habitat areas across the State.

With rising temperatures and increasingly dry conditions worsening across the State, access to water is essential for survival.

Please help to enable the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital to undertake this project. All assistance is greatly appreciated.
