The Koalas in the Clarence Register goes live!

about 1 year ago

Clarence Valley Council have been working with the Office and Environment and Heritage through a NSW Environment Trust grant to deliver improved outcomes for the vulnerable koala population in the Clarence.

The funded work will include on-ground activities to address threats to koalas, including loss of food and habitat, fire, pest animals and barriers. Education material will be developed and disseminated to identified landowners in koala habitat to help protect the last remaining individuals.

As part of the program, we have launched the Koala Register! The register will enable us to gather data on where koalas are in the landscape to further learn about why they prefer a particular habitat, why certain habitats contain more species than other similar habitats, and why they are declining from particular areas. By understanding their distribution, we can determine the conservation value of regional zones and further develop management guidelines for natural resources.

Get involved and register a sighting!

Happy sharing and thanks for being involved!
