Adopt a Wild Koala
COST INCREASE AND ADDITIONAL KOALA ADOPTIONS
Regretfully, due to rising costs in postage and printing, we have to increase the cost of our Koala adoptions. This has been the first increase in 8 years.
The new costs for adoptions are $60 within Australia and $70 for overseas adoptions, which includes postage.
The cost of eAdoptions has also risen to $40 in line with these changes.
We are also delighted to include more ”permanent” Koalas to the adoption program thus giving a choice of 42 Koalas which are now available for adoption.
Your adoption helps with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas and release back to their home range where possible; also the preservation and expansion of habitat, collection of information for research relating to habitat, disease, nutrition and habits of wild koalas and to provide educational material, to increase public awareness of all aspects of the koala.
By sharing in an AAWK adoption of a wild koala you will receive an adoption package which consists of a Certificate of Adoption that has the photo of the adopted koala, the name of the koala, the name of the person adopting the koala and the date of adoption. Include your special message to the recipient.
- Printed Adoption Certificate
- A story about your adopted koala
- Booklet about Koalas
- Vinyl Sticker with the words “I Have Adopted a Wild Koala”
- A Koala Hospital bumper sticker.
- A copy of the latest Gum Tips publication.
The cost of an AAWK adoption is AU$60 per year plus international postage fees. International postage can take 2 to 3 weeks to arrive.
By sharing in an ‘eAdopt’ adoption of a wild koala you will receive by email a Certificate of Adoption that has the photo of the adopted koala, the name of the person adopting the koala, the name of the koala and the date of adoption.
- e-Adoption Certificate received by email.
An eAdopt is AU$40 and is fully tax-deductible within Australia.
