We have been contracted by Lismore City Council to both design a long-term koala population monitoring program and provide a koala population estimate for the area covered by their approved Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management.  Lismore has one of the highest disease-mediated koala mortality rates of coastal NSW, yet - anecdotally - koala numbers appear to remain quite stable. This will be the first time an estimate of the size of the local population has been undertaken; the work is being done as a component of an ARC funded project directed by Prof.

Council of the City of Gold Coast
Coomera - Pimpama

In 2006 we were contracted by the then Gold Coast Council to undertake a koala habitat and population assessment across the Gold Coast LGA, including detailed studies in the Coombabah and Coomera-Pimpama areas. Amongst outcomes from this work were recommendations for dealing with the envisaged rapid urban expansion that was to occur in the Commera - Pimpama area.
