2017 to 2019

In 2017/18 we were appointed by the Council of the City of Gold Coast to reassess the Coomera - Pimpama and Coombabah koala populations. Using our original sites, this work involved resampling of remaining bushland areas, creation of new meta-population models, provision of a population estimate, analysis of mortality records and some population viability analysis.

In 2018/19 we were again appointed to provide a comprehensive overview of the ecology and conservation status of the Gold Coast koalas. Amongst other things the results of this most recent project have confirmed the merits of Council's East Coomera koala translocation program as well as updating koala habitat mapping.
