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.
The NSW Government is investing over $190 million to deliver the targeted conservation actions that the strategy sets out. These actions work towards the long-term goal of doubling koala numbers in NSW by 2050.
