Following on from our 2017 work, we have been engaged to undertake detailed koala hub assessments in the Tomago and Medowie areas, both of which were identified as potentially supporting small, extant population cells.

In 2012, the NSW Minister for Planning & Infrastructure initiated a review of the application of Environmental Zones (E Zones) and overlays in Local Environmental Plans on the Far North Coast of NSW. Amongst the implications arising from this review was the deferral of proposed land use zonings in some areas.


We often work with other consultancy companies and/or organisations to assist them with the undertaking of various projects. Current collaborations include:

- assisting with a long-term study being undertaken by colleague Dr. Mark Fitzgerald that uses a BACI (Before, After, Control, Impact) designed monitoring program assessing the potential impacts upon birds of various festival events  on the North Byron Parklands at Yelgun.

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.
