Koala Clancy Foundation is inspiring travellers and local communities to help ensure a future for wild koalas

The Koala Clancy Foundation is a not for profit incorporated association and registered charity set up to support the wild koalas of the Western Plains of Victoria, particularly around the You Yangs and Brisbane Ranges west of Melbourne.    

Our aims are - 

Protection of koalas in the wild through enhancement and protection of their natural habitat by:

  • organising travellers and locals to maintain and improve existing Koala habitat; and

  • educating travellers and the local community of the threats to wild koalas and their environment and the means to address these; and

  • mobilising the word of mouth and social media reach of the travel community worldwide to speak out in support of wild koalas and their environment; and

  • involving travellers and the local community in citizen science research into wild koala behaviour; and

  • creating partnerships with other organisations involved in koala protection, habitat creation and environment protection; 

  • and any other means available. 


A lot is happening and we have had an amazing time, thanks to our wonderful volunteers and supporters.  At the end of June 2018 we have now planted around 5000 trees in the area. 

In the 2017/2018 year alone - 

  • a total of 677 people participated in koala conservation.   
  • Public KCDs ran twice a month – and we had 272 participants (up 5% on last year), 630 hours of volunteer work,
  • approx 400,000 weeds removed and 2200 trees planted.
  • We also ran special 7 special KCDs (up 130%) with 118 participants and 270 hours of volunteer work.
