Eastern Darling Downs Habitat Linkage Project

Description

The koala is an iconic native species at significant risk from a range of threats associated with rural development exacerbated by climatic extremes. The basalt woodlands of the Eastern Darling Downs along the inland slopes of the Great Dividing Range of southern Queensland support significant but at-risk koala populations. Cambooya Landcare has initiated a project that will use a strategic planning approach to raise awareness and develop local vegetation management plans and guidelines to promote the active conservation and extension of koala habitat in the region. The project will engage a range of stakeholders (researchers, NRM managers, local landholders and community volunteers), establish a 2.5 hectare demonstration revegetation area and facilitate similar plantings on farms.
