Save the Koala Day
Friday 30th September 2022
In February 2022 the Koala was listed as ‘Endangered’ for the first time in eastern Australia.
The Koala is one of the world’s most iconic species, with it’s round body, fluffy ears and cute oval shaped nose, these adorable marsupials are an instantly recognisable symbol of Australia and an integral part of the Australian bush.
With over 90 years of experience working alongside koalas, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is dedicated to continuing work in the field of koala research, as well as across a variety of other wildlife species.
Lone Pine collaborates with universities, government, students and other reputable organisations, and over the years has contributed to hundreds of wildlife research projects.
What we're doing
As the world’s first and largest koala sanctuary, we have contributed to the publication of numerous research articles. Dedicated to improving our knowledge of this iconic marsupial, we will continue to support research investigating koala behaviour, disease and infection, anatomy, physiology, captive management, nutrition, reproduction and development.
Student & Volunteer Projects
Students and volunteers are the future of wildlife preservation and conservation. Lone Pine offers support across a variety of research fields by providing access to our native flora, fauna, and years of wildlife knowledge and expertise.
Providing organisations the opportunity to collaborate with accredited zoos and sanctuaries can greatly assist research projects working towards protecting our wild counterparts.
