GETTING MUDDY FOR KOALA RECOVERY
Despite recent flooding and consistent rain in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, WWF-Australia have been on-the-ground, getting their hands (and feet!) dirty for a koala tree planting event with Bangalow Koalas.
Our iconic koalas were recently listed as Endangered on the east coast under our national environment law, recognising they are one step closer to extinction. Koalas face many threats to their survival but the biggest threat is the loss and fragmentation of their forest homes. To help double the number of koalas on the east coast of Australia, we’re working to establish wildlife corridors by planting koala habitat and food trees.
Sadly, koalas are not the only Australian animal at risk of extinction and tree planting along with other landscape restoration projects are critical in safeguarding the future of vulnerable wildlife. By restoring habitat and food trees, we can encourage the recovery of many animals in the region.
