* Koalas in Coomera - Pimpama

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.

We have recently been appointed by the Council of the City of Gold Coast to reassess the Coomera - Pimpama koalas. Using our original sites, our work will involve resampling of remaining bushland areas, creation of new meta-population models, provision of a population estimate, analysis of mortality records and population viability analysis.
