Australian Koala Foundation
The Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) is the principal non-profit, non-government organisation dedicated to the management and conservation of the koala and its habitat.
AKF research indicates that the koala is in trouble and that extinctions of local populations have already occurred. In contrast to the millions of koalas which were thought to be present at the time of European settlement, the AKF believes that there could be less than 80,000 remaining today, possibly as few as 43,000. If this rate of decline continues then the koala is at risk of extinction.
AKF’s main goals are to refine and update the Koala Habitat Atlas mapping of all wild Koala habitat, and to get the Koala Protection Act enacted to ensure Koalas and their habitat are protected. You can help by writing to a politician to support the Koala Protection Act, by joining the Koala Army, by planting trees, adopting a koala, and more!
