General Information
The Ipswich Koala Protection Society, Inc was established in October 1994 and was originally known as the Woogaroo Koala Protection Society. In 2000 the name changed as the need for koala rescue outgrew the Woogaroo Creek area. Now we no longer rescue only within the confines of Ipswich, travelling in excess of 20,000 kilometres per year on koala rescues alone.

IKPS has two dedicated koala and wildlife ambulances that run 24/7 and rescue in excess of 180 koalas per year as well as countless numbers of other native wildlife.

In 2010 we established a Koala Rescue & Rehabilitation Clinic on a property at Mount Forbes with an experienced wildlife veterinarian on call 24/7.

We keep and maintain extensive records, statistics and mapping of koalas and koala habitat that is utilised to identify koala habitat and populations in and around the local area.

Education plays a critical role in what we do – displays, workshops, forums, conferences and working closely with Local, State and Federal Government agencies has become an important resource in the conservation and protection of koala habitat.
