* Koala PVA Project

Ecosure Pty Ltd, NSW Roads & Maritime Services
Wardell, NSW.

In August 2014 the Federal Environment Minister imposed conditions on Section 10 of the proposed Woolgoolga to Ballina Pacific Highway upgrade to the west of Wardell in north-eastern NSW, amongst which was the need to better consider the potential impact(s) of the intended upgrade on the local koala population by using Population Viability Analysis (PVA) modelling over a 50 year timeframe. Our report on population demographics, distribution and factors driving mortality in this important population was finalised  in September last year but has yet to be made available to the wider community.

Additional information about the project can be viewed on the NSWRMS website
