Koala Conservation

Listed as endangered, the Koala is under threat from habitat destruction, dog attacks and vehicle strikes. Many Koala populations are thought to have disappeared or are in serious decline. The Koala is iconic and at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary we have had a healthy population of Koalas for many decades and we will continue to care for and highlight the need for Koala conservation.


Koalas are not bears. They are marsupials, which means that they carry their young in a pouch.

Additional Facts

Koalas have two thumbs on their front paws - to help them climb, to hold onto the tree and to grip their food.
