* Post-fire koala surveys

World Wide Fund for Nature
Eastern Australia

Funded by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (Australia), we have recently commenced an assessment of the impact on koalas of the recent fire events. We are able to do this because earlier project work has provided us with a large array of contemporaneous (i.e. current koala generation) pre-fire survey data. To undertake this work we are planning to quantify the changes that have occurred by reassessing koala presence / absence at nearly 200 field sites from 7 - 9 separate fire grounds distributed between Forster on the NSW mid-north coast to Noosa in SE Qld.
