Kangaroo Island koalas rescued

Sixteen additional koalas have been translocated from bushfire-affected Kangaroo Island taking the total to 28, and will be housed at Cleland Wildlife Park to add to the recently established disease-free insurance population.

The rescued koalas will further our understanding of the debilitating diseases affecting koala populations Australia-wide.

IKCE will partner with Cleland to deliver much needed research: koala health and wellbeing, koalas in the landscape, and koalas in the community.
