* Revisiting the Byron Coast Koalas

Byron Shire Council
Byron Coast

In 2010 we undertook the first assessment of koala distibution and abundance in an area of the Byron Coast between Yelgun and Broken Head. In the latter half of 2016 we were engaged by the Byron Shire Counil to revisit each of the 63 field sites that underpinned our original study and so investigate changes to koala distribution and abundance that may have occurred over the intervening koala generation. Assisted by Council officers, we applied the principles of our newly developed Rapid-SAT methodology to the task. Our report on the results of the re-assessment is currently being drafted.
