Have your say about the Draft Koala Mapping

Have your say

K1To protect Moreton Bay’s koalas it is important that people urge the government to include areas where koalas live now in the official habitat mapping..

The Government says it wants submissions about koala habitat mapping to be lodged by 22 December 2019. The official submission process is geared to meeting the needs of property owners who want to have koala habitat mapping removed from their land.

So we suggest that you send your email submissions about the need for additional areas to be designated as koala habitat to the State Environment Minister with copies to:

If you see a koala on the ground like this, please phone 0401 350 799 immediately for rescue.

After taking this female to the Koala Hospital, we discovered she had been caught previously also on the ground. She had a microchip inserted & was given the name "Sally" before being released. 
 
This time, Sally was found on the ground again & taken to Hospital where they found she had developed cysts on the ovaries (Bursitis) which can be very painful & lead to a very painful death if left alone. 
 
She was found to also have unusually long claws that would have prevented her from climbing tall trees for food. Unfortunately the best thing to do was to put her to sleep so she would not suffer any longer".
