Ecological values recognised - Koala habitat

Koala habitat on private land will be purchased by the NSW State Government in a scheme that will prioritise the purchase of properties, or parts thereof, that support priority Koala habitat.  Koala priority localities include areas of the Northern Rivers, and initially will target the purchase of suitable land adjacent to the conservation reserves. 
Criteria for considering a property include:
  • presence of koala habitat
  • evidence of use by koalas
  • good connection to surrounding native vegetation
  • that reservation would improve the management of threats to koalas in that location.

Land & Fire Assessments fully support this move by the NSW Government and encourage landowners to get on board with the scheme.  LFA staff (Tony Coyle and Paola Rickard) are undertaken many assessments of Koala habitat and provide professional advice in relation to the occurrence of Koalas on your property. Further details are on the link below:

This is good news! Human encroachment to their habitat has contributed significantly to the dwindling of koala habitat. They are losing their home and their source of food. This government plan will prioritize those adorable cuddly fur babies for once. I hope this move will encourage the increase in koala population once again.
