“Our mission is to provide a strong, united and cohesive voice for koala conservation and protection.”
The National Koala Alliance (NKA) aims to provide a strong and united voice for the protection and conservation of Australia’s best-known and much-loved national icon, the koala.
We are a non-profit network of koala conservation, welfare, advocacy and research groups. We work in the areas of koala rehabilitation and release, habitat protection, koala research, community empowerment and political lobbying. Our one goal is to ensure that the koala survives and thrives in the wild throughout their remaining natural distribution.
Our mission is to provide a strong, united and cohesive voice for koala conservation and protection.
HOW WE BEGAN
The NKA grew out of the first National Koala Conference in June 2013 when the need for a national collaborative advocacy body for koalas was identified. The NKA was officially created in November 2013 and aims to take action to achieve koala welfare and protection throughout their distribution.
THE NKA NETWORK
Koalas are in trouble almost everywhere, threatened by habitat loss, disease, predation by domestic dogs and by conflict with human activities including roads and motor vehicles, industry and development. They are also threatened by the increasing uncertainty brought about by climate change, aspects of which include more frequent and intense bushfires.
The NKA is a collaborative network of wildlife carers, rescuers, advocates, conservationists and researchers formed to help protect koalas from these threats.
