Our Work

Lending a Helping Hand

The Save the Koala Foundation (STK) is working on several key projects to help Protect, Conserve and Rehabilitate Koala habitats. These include the Koala Hospital, Rehabilitation Centres, Training and Development Program, Research and Disease Prevention and Koala Tracking Program.


Foundation Causes

Save the Koala Foundation (STK) supports the following causes:

Koala Hospital

The Save the Koala Foundation (STK) supports a number of regional Koala Hospitals. These facilities carry out emergency on-site procedures and operations on injured and sick Koalas.

Rehabilitation Centres

Another main cause is to support regional rehabilitation centres that care for orphaned juvenile koalas, diseased koalas and koalas recovering from trauma, (including those that have been hit by a vehicle, attacked by dogs or impacted by bushfires). 


Koala Tracking Program

Since settlement, the Koala population in Australia has been declining rapidly. The Koala Tracking Program uses Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to track Koala movements and to protect koala habitats.
