Many residents living in Pine Rivers District of the Moreton Bay Regional Council are privileged to share their backyards with koalas. The main koala suburbs are Bray Park, Bunya, Cashmere, Dakabin, Eatons Hill, Joyner, Kallangur, Kurwongbah, Lawnton, Mango Hill, Petrie, Strathpine, Warner and Whiteside.

The Pine Rivers Koala Care Association Inc. (P.R.K.C.A.I.) was established in 1995 and is a voluntary organisation that operates as a local community group within the Pine Rivers/Redcliffe areas of Moreton Bay and North Brisbane. Our Association began its work by recording the numbers of koalas hit by motor vehicles, attacked by dogs and struck down by stress related and communicable diseases.

Today we provide a 24/7 ambulance service for the rescue and rehabilitation of all koalas and wildlife. We attend to over 300 koala calls and 1000 wildlife calls each year. Also collecting deceased koalas.

On 30 April 2012 Koalas were listed nationally as vulnerable in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT. Koalas can no longer rely on diminishing remnant bushland. These days much of the koalas habitat is on private property which means we as residents of Pine Rivers District need to do more to ensure the survival of the koala for future generations. Without human intervention to save these precious and unique animals, we may be seeing the beginning of the end for koalas in our urban areas.

...statistical evidence gathered to date indicates that the koala is in serious trouble.
 
 

>> The following are just some of the events the Association has attended in the last few months:

Clean Up Australia Day – 2 March 2014. Our site continues to improve but sadly the usual litter of cigarette butts, styro foam packaging and plastic continues to be an ongoing problem for the area. The environmental channels in this area are tidal and any rubbish that enters the water ends up in Saltwater Creek then Hays Inlet then out into Moreton Bay.
