About the program
The program aimed to provide a clear understanding of koala habitat identification and management needs in native forestry areas on public and private land in NSW.
The program comprised three core projects
- a baseline map of koala occupancy to provide a more accurate picture of where koalas are located across NSW
- a pilot project trialling three different mapping approaches to assess their suitability for managing koalas in state forests
- a predictive koala habitat model which uses a range of environmental variables to produce a map of koala habitat on the north coast
The program was funded by a Waste and Environment Levy (WELE) grant, administered by the NSW Environmental Trust.
