The Koala Land Report

The objective of this report is to explore ways of creating a sustainable future for koalas on the Koala Coast, South East Queensland, Australia. For the purpose of this report, the Koala Coast includes the local government areas of Moreton, Redland, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan. As indicated by its name, this whole area once had the highest density koala population in all of Australia.

Despite the Federal Government’s 2012 decision to classify Queensland’s koalas as vulnerable and add them to the Threatened Species List, there remains a lot of work to be done to stabilise diminishing koala populations.

This report sets out achievable solutions for rebuilding koala populations based on information gathered from conversations with the people that have worked with koalas for decades. They are researchers, scientists, vets, carers, wildlife rescuers, zoo keepers amongst others. This collection of knowledge provides a picture of what we have to start doing now to prevent koalas on the Koala Coast from becoming extinct.

    This article has been a real eye opener…Its really quite sad to think of the already species we have lost due to us humans. The closest thing I have of hugging a koala was a stuffed toy one I got off :(
