Join CVA every Friday as we get our hands dirty and engage in efforts designed to protect Koalas and Koala habitat in the ACT region.
Koalas were once common and widespread throughout eastern Australia. Yet despite their iconic status, a number of factors – including the fur trade, habitat loss and disease - have led to substantial declines in their numbers and a federal listing as vulnerable to extinction. They now only occur naturally in fragmented pockets of south-eastern Australia and Queensland, and only where there are adequate food and habitat trees to sustain them.
They type of work that we will be undertaking includes:
- Restore key koala habitat
- Research and monitor poorly known koala populations
- Educating the community in local koala conservation.
Come join us as we aim to protect this iconic Australian species.
