* Campbelltown Koalas

Campbelltown City Council
Campbelltown, southwest of Sydney, NSW.

For the past 12 months we have been working with Campbelltown City Council planning officers to prepare a Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management for the Campbelltown Koalas. Aspects of this project have included building on some of the earlier work by other parties, as well as undertaking more detailed analyses of historical koala records, revising the habitat mapping and working out how many koalas there are. The result as we see it is a nicely balanced CKPoM that is well informed and offering a long-term sustainable approach to juggling the needs of development  and koala conservation. The draft CKPoM has now been adopted by Council and forwarded to the Dept. of Planning & Environment for approval.
