Helping hand for Port Stephens Koalas

We’re proud to provide this support to Port Stephens Koalas to enable their tireless volunteers to continue caring for dozens of koalas each year, whilst further support for a permanent koala hospital is sought.

Port Stephens Koalas is a volunteer organisation working to preserve the dwindling local koala population by nursing sick and injured koalas back to health. The need for assistance is growing daily, with 11 of the iconic species currently receiving round-the-clock care.

Our donation means the organisation can continue to support a full time koala hospital coordinator at its recently opened rehabilitation facility at One Mile.

The generosity of Hunter Water means we can continue our important work in preserving the local koala population and ensure sick and injured koalas receive the care they need. Without this funding we would have had to cut critical resources.

Our funding has also contributed to a purpose built education facility due to open 2021.
We are committed to supporting and promoting environmental conservation, and what better way to do that than by investing in the preservation of a regional icon which is tragically under threat.

Community funding and partnerships

We're passionate about educating our community on water conservation, and are proud to offer grants through our Love Water initiative that help community members put their own strategies in place to conserve water.
