Projects with Aboriginal partners

Aboriginal communities have a strong role to play in ensuring the long-term health of koalas and their habitat.

Partnerships with Aboriginal communities are helping to deliver coordinated on-ground actions informed by community expertise. More partnerhips will be added to this page as work under the NSW Koala Strategy progresses.
