We are grateful for the many local and international volunteers that come to the Koala Hospital to work in the many aspects of hospital life.
While there are volunteers waiting to work directly with the koalas we have other areas of our work that also need volunteers. All of our volunteers enable the Koala Hospital to carry out its important work with the koalas at risk. Join with a fantastic group of people by becoming a Volunteer.
Volunteers cannot nurse the koalas but are still able to work closely with them in the yards, ICU or during treatment.
