Our 24-Hour Koala Rescue service covers the Adelaide Hills, all Adelaide metro areas and some regional areas.
We work with other agencies to assist with rescuing koalas in conservation parks including Morialta, Black Hill, Anstey Hill, Horsnell Gully, Giles, Cleland and others.
Our team members are trained and skilled in koala and other wildlife rescue and have South Australian Fauna Permits for the rehabilitation of koalas.
We have partnerships with other wildlife rescue groups in SA and can often help with possums, kangaroos and other native wildlife species.
Koalas ALWAYS need attention if:
- hit by car
- attacked by a dog
- found sitting on the ground
- found laying on the groung
- have signs of injury
- are small and potentially orphaned
A koala hit by car ALWAYS needs help. Koalas can walk-off, climb trees and appear ok following a car strike however they usually sustain internal injuries.
A koala attacked by a dog ALWAYS needs checking by a trained koala specialist and/or vet. Their thick fur can hide puncture wounds and they often sustain internal injuries.
Koalas only come to ground to travel between trees. A koala that spends time sitting on the ground needs checking out. A koala laying on the ground needs urgent attention.
Unsure if a koala needs help?
If in doubt, call us out!
