Koalas in the Clarence Valley

Calling all citizen scientists and wildlife enthusiasts! Clarence Valley Council is keen to learn about where you've seen koalas.

We are collecting data on where our koalas are located to help conserve this iconic species. The koala register will let you pin point a koala sighting location on a map. You'll also be able to add more information about the sighting.

Furthermore, local koala release sites are lacking and so we are seeking nominations for suitable sites. If you think your property would make a suitable koala release site - nominate it! Head to the Release Site Nomination tab to fill in the form.

    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...

    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.
