ANU Koala Conservation and Protection Fund

Priority area: Transforming our world

The ANU Koala Conservation and Protection Fund supports the temporary housing of bushfire affected koalas at The Australian National University (ANU) and ongoing research to better understand and protect these beloved creatures.

Koalas displaced and injured by Australia's bushfire crisis are being cared for and housed temporarily at ANU. The University has been working alongside local wildlife agencies to receive the koalas, including accepting koalas from the Two Thumbs Wildlife Trust Koala Sanctuary which sadly burnt down during the fires.

Our koala guests are in good spirits despite suffering from stress, malnutrition and, in some cases burns. Your gift will be used immediately to care for the koalas, assisting our team to nurse them back to full health and, in time, to reintroduce them into the wild and track their progress. Gifts will also support ongoing research to understand the impact of bushfires and climate change on koalas and their habitat.

Gifts can be made:

In Australian dollars, directly to ANU. All donations over $2 are tax deductible for Australian tax payers.

In US dollars, via the ANU Foundation USA' PayPal form. For PayPal donations:  type Koalas in "add a note". For credit cards donations:  type Koalas in "add special instructions to the seller".

Donations to the ANU Foundation USA are tax-deductible for USA tax payers to the extent allowed by the law. The ANU Foundation USA is organized and operated exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, and registered as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code.
