If you are wondering what to buy as a gift for someone who ‘has everything’ then this is an ideal solution to your problem.
Our Adopt A Wild Koala Program is the major source of fund raising for the Koala Hospital.
The koalas offered for adoption are real koalas that have been admitted to our hospital, successfully treated, tagged, micro chipped and then released back into the wild.
Your adoption helps with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas and release back to home range where possible; also the preservation and expansion of habitat, collection of information for research relating to habitat, disease, nutrition and habits of wild koalas and to provide educational material, to increase public awareness of all aspects of the koala.
Please select an adoption package from the list below to get started.
By sharing in an AAWK adoption of a wild koala you will receive an adoption package containing:
- a Certificate of Adoption with the photo and name of your koala, the name of the person adopting the koala, and the date of adoption.
- a story about your adopted koala
- a vinyl sticker with the KPS Logo and the words ‘I Have Adopted A Wild Koala’
- a Koala Hospital bumper sticker
