New Guidelines to Help Koalas

17 Sep 2020
Koala habitat

New resources have been developed for local councils to use in the conservation and management of koalas and other wildlife.

Councils play a key role in managing their local environment. This includes protecting environmental values, reducing or controlling threats to native wildlife, and increasing awareness in the community about native wildlife and vegetation.

We’ve developed these resources for councils and local communities to use to support koalas and their habitat and reduce key threats.

Our Koala habitat revegetation guidelines provide evidence-based recommendations and best-practice methods for revegetating koala habitat.

A series of fact sheets provides information about the impacts of vehicle strike on koalas and how this can be reduced.

And a new document provides land managers with guidance on designing infrastructure and programs to reduce the incidence of dog attacks on native wildlife.

The new resources are all available on the Local government resources for koala conservation page.
