Want to help conservation specialists understand Macarthur’s koala population a little better?

You’re in luck – Conservation Volunteers Australia is calling on the Wollondilly community to help them collect data which will prove invaluable to koala conservation in the region.

Conservation Volunteers Australia, with South 32 – Illawarra Coal and the Office of Environment and Heritage have been gathering information about the koala population between Campbelltown and the Southern Highlands for the past year.

More people are needed help this project continue.

“Volunteers have been instrumental in helping us keep an eye on the koalas in the Wollondilly shire,” Saving our Species program manager Linda Bell said.

“Volunteers work alongside us to monitor where these koalas live, how they move about, what they are eating and where they shelter – providing invaluable data for the local Koala Conservation Project.”
