Our Projects

The Koala Hospital in Horseshoe Bay began as an emergency facility for koalas that Ali took into care as a volunteer. We are now a registered charity and with grants and donations we are expanding and improving the facilities...

New Facilities

Protecting Australia's koalas means it is important to educate everyone - school children, local families and tourists - about these lovable and harmless animals. 

Every time we release a rehabilitated animal it is a "teachable moment"...


We are planting a whole new forest of Eucalyptus trees! We have set aside a plot of land nearby, as "Land for Wildlife", and are planting hundreds of koala food trees...

Planting a Forest

In future we hope to not only continue to rescue and treat and rehabilitate/ improve our hospital facilities but also to  collaborate with other Koala carers and researchers Australia wide to ensure that this iconic native will endure.
