Koala care and rescue
The department operates a koala ambulance and rescue service in South East Queensland.
What can you do if you have seen a sick, injured, orphaned or dead koala?
- Contact the Koala ambulance straight away if you suspect a koala is unhealthy and in need of assistance, and provide any information about the koala’s condition. For example, does it have a wet and dirty bottom (cystitis), or inflamed eyes (conjunctivitis)?
