East coast koalas are doing it tough but people everywhere are rallying to save them. Find out more here.

No where to go


Last Friday we launched a campaign to fight for the future of the adorable koala. Since then, thousands have joined the cause. Will you help?

These iconic Australian animals are being driven from their homes – and to extinction – by reckless and excessive tree-clearing.

In Queensland and New South Wales, laws have been overturned that protect the few remaining safe koala habitats. The bush that koalas call home is being bulldozed so excessively that in several areas this iconic species is already locally extinct.

Queensland’s Koala Coast has already lost 80% of its koala population. And it’s going to get even worse if we don’t act.

We have a window right now to push for change for a better future for koalas in Queensland. That’s why today, Endangered Species Day, we’re asking for your help by sending a KIMBY.

KIMBY, which stands for Koala In My Backyard, is a virtual origami koala that will carry your message of hope to 12 key Queensland representatives, who have the ability to make change on this issue.

Your personalised KIMBY will join a community of thousands showing Queensland’s parliament that we all want stronger laws to protect trees to keep our shared backyard safe for koalas and all other native wildlife.

Thank you for adding your voice

Head of Living Ecosystems

 People power can make a big difference. Help us spread the word about the challenges facing koalas and share and tell your friends about KIMBY
