Koalas in retirement
Koalas in captivity tend to live longer than their wild counterparts
The life expectancy of a wild koala is eight to 10 years, while a captive koala may live up to 15 years thanks to plentiful food, veterinary care, and a lack of predators.
One of our koalas named Sarah lived to be 23, making her the world’s longest lived koala on record.
To see this species in the wild, we suggest Mt Gravatt Conservation Reserve, Queensland.
