Something about us

We are a non-profit association based in South East Queensland.
We provide rescue, trauma care, hand rearing and rehabilitation of koalas, wombats and other Australian wildlife.

One of our specialties is caring for koalas.
Vehicle hits, dog attacks, disease and starvation are all killers of this amazing animal.

All of these can be linked back to one overriding cause: Habitat Loss.
Whether selective clearing or wholesale residential development, the impact can be just as devastating to this extremely specialised little marsupial.

For Koala and Wombat rescues on the Darling Downs, call 0427 969860. For other animals and birds, please call 1300 ANIMAL.

Welcome to Return to the Wild!

Our Queensland koalas are in danger of disappearing from the wild. This is due to continuing habitat loss and all the dangers this presents.

We rescue and provide critical care and rehabilitation for the koala and as required by the law have to return them to the wild.

From injured or sick adults to tiny orphaned koalas (who have to be fed every 2 to 3 hours – little sleep for us!), we avail ourselves 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There is nothing we do not drop when called out to do ‘a rescue’.

It is both intensely rewarding, and heartbreakingly exhausting, but it is our calling and thus we continue.

We receive phone calls to help all wildlife and even domestic animals, and network with other organisations and carers to help these animals. We have raised and rehabilitated many species over the years, and provide specialist care for the koala and the wombat.

Please help our koalas “Return to the Wild” by donating!
