Redlands Coast Koala Watch is a joint partnership between the community, koala researchers and Redland City Council that allows you to contribute to koala conservation. Our research team is amazing, but they can’t be everywhere. So they are relying on help from the community to keep track of local koalas.

How does it work?

When you spot a koala simply grab your phone and record the sighting in the Redlands Coast Koala Watch hub on Bicollect. You can also check and see if the koala is sick or injured, and get help if needed from our Redlands 24-hour Wildlife Rescue Service by calling (07) 3833 4031.
