Our Story

The Koala Health Hub was founded on public donations collected by the Koala Park Sanctuary, West Pennant Hills and receives ongoing support from the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.

For 30 years, the University of Sydney has been at the forefront of koala disease discovery. Through laboratory and veterinary support, workshops, online communication and individual consultation, The Koala Health Hub connects quality research with those on the coalface of koala management.

We provide

  • evidence for better decision-making on koala care and management,
  • training and advice to support the best outcomes for koalas
  • connections to help koala carers, researchers and government work together for greater effect.
