The Koala Research Network is an independent group of Australian researchers concerned with ensuring the long term viability of koala populations in the wild. We recognise that the conservation and management of koalas is a complex issue, with regional variations in population dynamics.

Although the koala has experienced dramatic declines throughout much of its range, some southern Australian populations have become abundant. Nonetheless, koalas throughout Australia remain threatened by habitat loss, urbanisation, climate change, disease, and inbreeding depression. As such, the issues facing koalas and those charged with managing them across Australia need to be informed by the best available science.

Key Objective of the Koala Research Network

"To effectively synthesise the wealth of knowledge possessed by Australia’s koala researchers, disseminate this science amongst researchers and their institutions and convey it to government and the general public in a considered, integrated and understandable manner.”
