Koalas: Born to climb
Koalas have been superstars at the San Diego Zoo ever since the first two debuted here 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. Many of our koalas are currently off exhibit as we build Australian Outback, the best koala exhibit and care center beyond Australia’s borders, but a few can be seen in their temporary quarters near Skyfari West, across from the Zoo’s 4-D Theater. Look for the opening of Australian Outback in May 2013!
