You are helping the wild koalas of Clancy's crew in the You Yangs!
Wild koalas all over Australia are vulnerable to loss of habitat. In the You Yangs Ranges weeds are taking over koala land.

The You Yangs Range is a small national park near Melbourne, south-eastern Australia. It is one of few remaining areas with a completely healthy wild koala population – they are neither overabundant nor in serious decline. These koalas are part of an important research group studying the social behaviour of a stable koala population.
Who is Clancy's crew? They are all the koalas related to Clancy, our most famous wild koala. Clancy is the second son of Pat, another of our research koalas. Pat is the daughter of Smoky, who was one of the first koalas we met in the You Yangs in 2006. Clancy, like most young males, left his mother’s home range at 20 months old, but rather than disappearing he set up home in another part of our research area. As far as we know, he is the first wild male koala to ever be monitored from birth through independence and into adulthood.
This research is of critical importance. Recently koalas have been listed as Vulnerable by two Australian states. Victoria, where Clancy lives, is also experiencing severe declines in koala numbers. We need to act fast to save koalas as a wild species.
Help us help Clancy, and Clancy's crew!
