Dingo
Canis lupus dingo
Dingos have been in Australia now for around 3500 years and their introduction is thought to be a result of trade between Asian seafarers and indigenous tribes of northem Australia.

Dingoes are closely related to domestic dogs and interbreeding has led to a thinning of their purebred genetic line. They are often observed alone but like other dogs will form cooperative social packs for the purpose of maintaining territories, rearing pups, and bringing down large prey. Prey items range from rodents to Kangaroos, and also farm animals such as sheep and calves.

Breeding occurs in winter with the average litter numbering five pups, reared in an underground den. The young are independent at around four months but may remain with the pack until the next breeding season.

Koala Hospital


Regreso a Port Macquarie para hacer una visita a: Koala Hospital, es un lugar donde curan a los koalas que normalmente son atropellados por los coches, hacen un gran trabajo, les llegan entre 200 y 300 Koalas cada año, incluso se puede adoptar a un koala para ayudar económicamente.

The cost of an adoption is AU$40 within Australia and AU$50 overseas per year.

By sharing in the adoption of a wild koala you will receive an adoption package which consists of a Certificate of Adoption that has the photo of the adopted koala on the front, the name of the person adopting the koala, the name of the koala and the date of adoption. As well as the Certificate the package also contains a story about the adopted koala, a vinyl sticker with the KPS Logo and the words “I Have Adopted A Wild Koala”, a coloured pamphlet about the Hospital and a booklet about koalas.

Your adoption helps with the rescue and treatment of sick and injured koalas and release back to home range if possible; also the preservation and expansion of habitat, collection of information for research relating to habitat, disease, nutrition and habits of wild koalas and to provide educational material, to increase public awareness of all aspects of the koala.
