    Koala Projects

    2022-2026 NSW Koala Program - NT Regional Partnership

    The 2022-2026 NSW Koala Program - Northern Tablelands Regional Partnership will be run across our region from 1 June 2022 to 30 June 2026. It will deliver on-ground actions to protect local koala populations and their habitat in Northern Tablelands over the next five years. Project activities focus on the Armidale and Uralla local government areas and surrounds.

    The project is funded by the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

    2022 CSIRO National Koala Monitoring Plan

    From February 2022 to June 2023, Southern New England Landcare will coordinate monitoring for the presence of koalas in key areas of the Armidale region.

    The project is funded by the Australian Government.

    2022-2023 Federal Koala Investment Project

    From 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023, this project will deliver key activities aimed at researching, monitoring and conserving koala populations in the Armidale Area of Regional Koala Significance (ARKS). It will also work with and expand on the achievements of our 2020-22 Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership Project.

    Project activities align with and contribute to the NSW Koala Strategy and the NSW Koala Research Program and the project will be guided by the Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership Project Steering Committee.

    Funding for this project has been provided through the Department of Planning and Environment (DPE) as part of the Federal Governments Regional Bushfire Recovery for Multiregional Species and Strategic Projects Program grant opportunity.

    2020-2023 ARC Koala Drinker Project

    This project will purchase and install camera traps on a series of koala drinkers in the Armidale Regional Council area. We will coordinate community volunteers to check the drinkers on a regular basis to ensure the batteries and SD cards are maintained and download the data.

    2021-2022 NSW Koala Monitoring Framework

    The 2021-2022 Koala Monitoring Framework secured funds to deliver the monitoring and surveying component of our 2020-2022 Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership project. It deployed 50 audio moths at nominated sites across the Armidale region, and downloaded data for submission in a report to the Department of Planning and Environment for analysis.
