Creating game changing partnerships in survival science

Koala Life is a leading voice in koala conservation. Together with our partners, Koala Life is helping to connect and support an international network of koala experts.

Our network also involves volunteers and supporters as well as scientists, politicians, universities and organisations.

Koala Life helps to link researchers across a range of institutes (local, national and international) and government agencies to collaborate and share research, findings, techniques and management strategies to bridge knowledge gaps and secure the long-term management of koalas across Australia.
