*Bootawa Koala Hub Assessment

MidCoast Council and the Department of Planning, Infrastructure and the Environment (DPIE)
Kiwarrack, NSW

As part of on-going work for the Save our Species Iconic Koala Project we have been working to investigate the status of a potential 'koala hub' in the Bootawa area to the southwest of Taree on the mid-coast of NSW. Field work has confirmed the presence of an active koala source population that is largely mostly restricted to areas of farmland, the adjoining Kiwarrack State Forest being largely empty due to a long history of over exploitation.
