Koalas Need Your Helping Hand!

Koalas have been superstars at the San Diego Zoo ever since the first two debuted in 1925! For the past 30 years, we've been renowned for having the largest colony of koalas and the most koala births—123 joeys!—outside Australia. And, our scientists and keeper staff are dedicated to koala conservation efforts.

Now it's time to give our Zoo koalas a new home. Please help us build Australian Outback, the best koala exhibit and care center beyond Australia's borders.

Australian Outback Highlights

• All the koalas housed at the Zoo—more than two dozen of them!—will be visible to guests in outdoor habitats.
• Koalas and guests will be immersed in a eucalyptus grove, surrounding an Aussie Queenslander house that serves as a care center.
• Floor-to-ceiling windows at the care center will enable guests to watch keepers as they prepare food and weigh koalas.
• A classroom for students of all ages is adjacent to the care center.
• Aussie animal ambassadors, such as kookaburras and small marsupials, will live at the care center.
• A future Tasmanian devil exhibit and aviaries for exotic Aussie birds are also part of Australian Outback.
• An ADA-accessible walkway will make it easy for all guests to reach Australian Outback from the Zoo's main entrance.

Donate Now

Please give us a helping hand to create the ultimate home for our koalas and the best-ever viewing experience for our guests. Your gift today will truly have an impact on the lives of the precious koalas in our care.
