Friends of the Koala is a non-profit community group run by volunteers dedicated to conserving koalas in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia.See Friends of the Koala and all Lismore has to offer by arranging your trip with our Lismore vacation maker app.
Volunteer rehabilitators operate a 24 hour rescue service for sick, injured and orphaned koalas. Koalas are cared for in home care or at the Koala Care Centre on Rifle Range Rd, Lismore, NSW. Critically ill koalas are transferred to the Currumbin Sanctuary Wildlife Hospital and/or Australian Wildlife Hospital in Queensland for treatment and then if possible returned to Lismore for recuperation and release.
The group also runs a native plant nursery that grows koala food trees that are sold at the ridiculously small amount of $1 to landholders in koala habitat areas.
