We are concurrently undertaking several landscape-scale, koala-centric connectivity studies intended to better understand and predict the movement needs of koalas across fragmented landscapes. We use to GIS-based spatial and analytical framework offered by GAP CLoSR (Generalised Approach to Planning Connectivity at Local Scales or Regional) to do this type of work. We work closely with Professor Alex Lechner (University of Nottingham), one of the original developers of the GAP CLoSR package, planning to eventually publishe a peer-reviewed paper on the potential utility of the package to resolve issues of connectivity for koalas.
