* Port Stephens Koalas I

Port Stephens Council
Port Stephens LGA

We have been working with Port Stephens Council on several projects, the most recent of which was a Save our Species Iconic Koala Project report intended to establish a framework for the long-term sustainable management of koalas and their habitat across the LGA.  Key areas for vehicle-strike have been identified, as have the locations of koala population 'hubs' and associated linkage / connectivity needs. East of the Pacific Highway, fire has been identified as one of the primary threats to koalas, thus necessitating the need for agencies and stakeholders to work towards a common goal. We are excited to have been involved with this project which, for the first time, has nailed down the key issues and actions required to ensure the survival of Port Stephens koalas.
