Welcome to the KAI Education pages.

KAI undertakes a range of activities related to koala education and awareness. The primary focus of this website is the South East Queensland region of Australia, however some information has been provided about koalas living in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

There are many different aspects to koala education and awareness on an individual level, that of a group, school or large organisation. Over the years we have learned to adapt our presentations to cater to each need both in content and length of the presentation.

KAI also feels it necessary to inform the general public of the plight of this unique iconic Australia marsupial by attending as many comminity and environmental events as we can. The fundamental cause of the decline in koala populations is the loss and fragmentation of their habitat. We have included information on koala food tree species and a general glossery of terms in this section.

We have separated all of these componants into categories, each of which have more in-depth information. Please follow the links on each listing below.

Koala Food Trees

The koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) is a folivore, an animal which feeds primarily, but not exclusively, on the Genus Eucalyptus. Throughout their range in eastern Australia, koalas use a wide variety of eucalypt species. Only a few species of eucalypt will be preferentially used by koalas. Such species, where they occur, are vitally important to the distribution, abundance and well being of koala populations. 

A variety of other trees, including many non-eucalypts, are also used by koalas for feeding and shelter, or other behavioural purposes.

Public Awareness and Activism

The general public appear to remain unaware of the plight of the koala in South East Queensland in spite of the media attention it receives.

KAI generates awareness utilising a range of media options, public demonstrations and by attending community/environmental events.

We regularly submit articles into local newspapers and have been filmed on local TV current affairs programs.
