Burleigh Heads is home to a small but long-established koala population that is particularly vulnerable to threats posed by habitat fragmentation, isolation and degradation, vehicle strike, attack by domestic dogs, disease and bushfire.
Koalas on the Gold Coast benefit from the presence of preferred tree species to provide a reliable food source, shelter and increased connectivity between habitat patches.
We would like to invite you to help protect the koalas in Burleigh Heads by participating in our Koala Tree Planting Day.
