Pledge to help RSPCA Queensland rescue koalas in need

Every day, RSPCA Queensland's Wildlife Hospital cares for koalas in need. Habitat destruction, traffic accidents, dog attacks, and disease are causing our koala populations to decline.

Your pledge will help us raise awareness about how critical the next decade is for koalas in Queensland.

Your support ensures our hardworking staff can continue providing specialised and intensive care for our koalas each day. Every koala counts, so let’s make sure they have a long-term future in Queensland.

Did you know?
Just six years ago, we had 8,000 native wildlife in our care. Now we’re caring for over 25,000 animals every year with no signs of slowing down. At the peak of trauma season, we can have as many as nine koalas admitted per day.

Easy ways to save wildlife!

There are a few simple steps you should always follow if you come across injured, sick or abandoned wildlife. We’ll walk you through them!

Found an injured animal? Check that the environment is safe, and that the animal is one you can safely handle.


Place the injured animal in a covered box or animal carrier. Ensure that the box/carrier is cool and that there is soft bedding inside.


Call the RSPCA’s 24/7 Animal Emergency Hotline 1300 ANIMAL for advice. If you can, transport the animal to your nearest Wildlife Hospital, veterinarian or wildlife carer.
