On Friday 15 September the City of Gold Coast Koala Conservation Plan was endorsed by full Council to begin implementation as an ongoing management program.
This Koala Conservation Plan builds on the previous experience and learnings of the Elanora-Currumbin Waters, East Coomera and Burleigh Ridge koala conservation plans, and identifies informed and targeted actions to mitigate key threats to koalas across the city.
The Vulnerable Species Management team (aka the Koala team) would like to send a sincere thanks to all those involved in the process, including our expert panel, those who provided feedback and those that assisted in gathering the data crucial to the foundations of this plan, including Currumbin Wildlife Hospital and Wildcare Australia Inc.
We are excited to begin implementing the conservation actions and monitoring the populations at a city wide scale.
Thank you again for taking the time out of your busy lives to assist in delivering this very important achievement.Please find a copy of the Koala Conservation Plan here
