Koala Action Inc. (KAI) is a volunteer not for profit group made up of individuals concerned about the long-term survival of the koala population in South East Queensland. Its objectives are to help koalas by urging local, state and federal government as well as businesses to retain native bush land habitat, provide resources to rehabilitate degraded bush land to increase its carrying capacity and encourage the replanting of koala food trees and other natives in parks, reserves and open spaces.
KAI provides free koala education and awareness presentations to community groups, schools and private enterprise. Members are also involved in the rescue and care of sick, injured and orphaned koalas as well as actively facilitate the creation and grow koala food tree plantations.
KAI applies for grants and funding at a local, state and federal government level to enable our members to rehabilitate degraded bush land habitat and replant koala food trees and other natives wherever possible. In addition, KAI provides support to those raising koala orphans from their homes.
KAI was involved in the establishment of Queensland Koala Crusaders Inc. (QKC) a like minded volunteer not for profit group based on the Sunshine Coast; the Moreton Bay Eco Alliance (MBEA) that is focusing on habitat loss and fragmentation in the Moreton Bay region and the National Koala Alliance (NKA) made up of koala groups based in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
