    Interested in giving Koalas a helping hand?

    Koala Image Brian WilsonIf you are a landholder managing a few acres or more, this opportunity could be for you. 

    The Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership project is offering landholders an opportunity to secure direct funding for Koala habitat development and Koala habitat conservation. Funding is available for planting Koala specific vegetation including primary feed trees and habitat trees. This will help increase Koala and wildlife corridors in our local area. Funding will also be available to fence, improve and conserve existing habitat through livestock exclusion and weed management.

     

    Over the coming months the Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership Project will also focus on involving the whole community in a range of Koala conservation activities including:

    • Providing the community with knowledge and skills to identify likely koala habitat and report Koala Sightings using the ispy app or reporting directly to Armidale Council (if you are in the Armidale Council area) or Landcare (if you are outside the Armidale Council area
    • Tracking and monitoring local koala populations to determine approximate population size, range and distribution using detection dogs and audio equipment
    • Working with Wildlife Carers to improve the resources and training opportunities to care for injured Koalas
    • Engaging directly with the community and Landcare groups to share ideas on specific koala conservation projects.

    Detailed information to assist landholders with the development of koala habitat, and provide the wider community with knowledge and skills to identify and report Koala sightings, will be supported by two Landcare hosted workshops in the first half of 2021. Please check our Facebook and webpage for news and updates. 

    Landholders, please download this Expression of Interest form to apply for funded koala habitat projects. This link is also be able on our webpage.

    These activities and funding are provided as part of the NSW Government "Saving our Species" (SoS) program.
