Understanding and managing koala habitat – field day and tree planting

Understanding koala habitat is an important part of koala watching and knowing how changes in habitat can affect koalas can assist you in recognising when a koala may need care. Friends of the Koala is rolling out the next stage of the Koala Watch: community-led koala recovery in the Northern Rivers Project. If you attend the Understanding and Managing Koala Habitat workshops and field days you will find out: why Ballina's koalas are important; how koalas use habitat across the landscape; the trees and vegetation koalas use and why; how koalas respond to habitat disturbance, including droughts, heatwaves, storms and fires; how climate change has affected, is currently affecting and will affect our koalas; and what you can do to help support a healthy koala population.
This project is assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust and by Member for Ballina, Tamara Smith.
