NSW Koala Strategy

The NSW Koala Strategy is supporting a range of conservation actions that will provide more habitat for koalas, support local community action, improve koala safety and health, and build our knowledge to improve koala conservation.

Protecting koalas for future generations

Koalas in NSW are facing a range of threats, including habitat loss and fragmentation, climate change, bushfires, disease, declining genetic diversity, vehicle strike and dog attacks. These factors have resulted in significant population decline, with koalas now listed as ‘endangered’.

The NSW Government is committed to addressing these threats to protect koalas for future generations.
