Koala Action Inc is a
not-for-profit group made up of
those concerned about
the long-term survival of koalas in
South East Queensland, Australia

 
 


The koala (Phascolarctidae Cinereus), Queensland's faunal emblem is on the brink of extinction
in many parts of its bushland habitat. In 2004 the koala was declared ‘regionally vulnerable
because habitat loss and fragmentation, motor vehicle strikes, dog attacks and disease saw
a 30% decrease in the koala population in less than a decade.

Ongoing koala population surveys conducted in 2007/2008 in the Moreton Bay region,
which includes Caboolture, Pine Rivers and Redcliffe saw a 47% decline.
In Redlands, (the Koala Coast) there was a 67% decline.
An immediate, direct action plan was needed for the koala population to remain sustainable
a great deal more than words are required from its human neighbours.

KAI was established in 2004 to do just that. This environmental group is a volunteer
not-for-profit incorporated association made up of concerned individuals from all walks of life
willing to do all that they can to ensure the koala survives into the future.

Koala Action Inc’s objectives are to help this endangered Australian marsupial by advocating
on their behalf through lobbying local, state and federal government as well as businesses
to retain native bushland habitat, rehabilitate degraded bushland to increase its carrying capacity
and to replant koala food trees and other native plants in parks, reserves and open spaces.

We provide free koala education and awareness presentations to community groups, schools
and private enterprise. Our members are involved in the rescue and care of sick,
injured and orphaned koalas and actively grow and facilitate the
creation of koala food tree plantations.

Grants and funding from local, state and federal government as well as within
the business community enable our members to rehabilitate degraded bushland habitat
by removing exotic weeds, plants and grasses to allow natural regeneration to take place.
Members are committed to replanting koala food trees and other native plants in parks,
reserves and open space. In addition, we provide support to those raising orphaned
koala joeys from their homes.

KAI is also actively involved in the establishment of other like minded organisations
including:

Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc (QKC) based on the Sunshine Coast,
Mango Hill and North Lakes Environment Group,
Moreton Bay Eco Alliance (MBEA) focusing on habitat loss and fragmentation in the Moreton Bay region,
The
National Koala Alliance (NKA) made up of stake holders from Queensland, N.S.W, Victoria and S.A.
