Koala Conservation Day
Enjoy a day in the outdoors, connecting with nature and helping koalas.
- Help us take action to save wild koalas in the You Yangs and the Western Plains near Melbourne.
- Create koala habitat & learn about koalas.
- Meet others who are passionate about Australian wildlife.
- Participate in wild koala research and meet famous wild koalas.
Search for koalas, take walks through bushland with naturalists and remove weeds and plant trees for koala habitat in the company of a highly experienced Koala Researcher.
What happens on the day? Koala habitat improvement (either tree planting, weed removal or planting maintenance) takes up about 1.5 hours of the day. The rest of the day is spent on walks through koala habitat, meeting and learning about koalas but also observing birds, kangaroos, wallabies and other mammals and reptiles, and discovering plants that are important to koalas.
Koala Clancy Foundation
The Koala Clancy Foundation is a not for profit incorporated association and registered charity set up to support the wild koalas of the Western Plains of Victoria, particularly around the You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges west of Melbourne.
