Currumbin Wildlife Conservation
Extinction is forever; but we still have time.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary currently has 15 Conservation projects underway to save species like Koalas, Kroombit Tinkerfrogs and Eastern Bristlebirds from becoming extinct.
The importance of captive breeding programs for endangered Australian species cannot be understated. It is often the last piece of hope to save animals from extinction because once they are gone, they are gone forever.
Donate today to support Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary’s Conservation programs. Your gift will help ensure the survival of endangered species so that future generations can enjoy them too, not just read about them in history books.
National Trust of Australia (QLD) maintains four Eucalyptus plantations of varying sizes that are harvested daily by a team of dedicated gum-cutters. These plantations provide ideal dietary requirements for healthy Koalas cared for in the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, as well as sick and injured Koalas cared for at Currumbin Wildlife Hospital.
There are 24 different species of eucalypts among the 20,000 trees growing in the plantations, all crucial to the survival of the Koala species as wild eucalypt habitat continues to shrink due to urban development, bushfires and other environmental pressures.
Each plantation requires quality care to ensure they remain healthy and sustainable into the future. National Trust of Australia (QLD) is always looking for suitable land to establish additional plantations as the number of Koalas needing our care continues to grow. Due to constant harvesting, these trees have a limited lifespan.
