Our Objective

  • Increasing public awareness of the koala and its protection by participating in displays, conducting information and awareness activities, providing presentations to the community and relevant organisations. Writing articles and editorial comments to the print media, participating in radio and television interviews and organising media coverage of events and activities that impact both positively and negatively on the koala and its habitat.
  • Protecting koala habitat by working with or lobbying government at all levels to develop legislation and planning laws, enact and apply legislation and laws to retain or design koala corridors in commercial and residential developments.
  • Ensuring appropriate legislation and local laws are developed to protect the koala from death and injury from major threats such as domestic dog attacks and vehicle impacts.
  • Reestablishing koala habitat by working with the Moreton Bay Regional Council and other organisations in tree plantings, and rehabilitating land damaged by noxious weeds and introduced flora.
  • Rescue and rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned koalas using the services of the Association's Pine Rivers Koala Rescue Team, the Moggill Koala Rehabilitation Centre https://www.ehp.qld.gov.au/wildlife/koalas/care/moggill-koala-hospital.html open 365 days of the year - not open to the public, operating since 1991, RSPCA Qld Wildlife Hospital Wacol https://www.rspcaqld.org.au/what-we-do/care-for-animals/wildlife-hospital, Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital Beerwah https://www.australiazoo.com.au, local veterinarians and licensed carers.
  • Participate in the collation of statistical information on the koala population of the district by encouraging the community to report sightings to PRKCAI  to establish data on koala habitats. Provide statistics to the Daisy Hill Koala Centre on koala activity performed by the rescue team.
  • Conduct fundraising activities to ensure the Association's activities remain viable, proactive, independent and credible.
  • Assist and support the community in professional submissions to government on the protection of the koala and its habitat.
