Eurobodalla Koala Project
Reviving the Koalas of the Eurobodalla
The Revised Eurobodalla Koala Recovery Strategy 2021 is now available for use.
Our aspiration is to rescue deforested alluvial lowlands and ensure they are connected by koala-compatible forested corridors.
Advice for householders
- Householders with space, plant a koala tree
- On lower spots with better soils and moisture, try Forest Red Gum, Woollybutt, Coast Grey Box or Maiden’s Gum
- On slopes with well drained, less fertile soils, try Red Ironbark, Yellow Stringybark or White Stringybark
Advice for bush block and acreage owners
- Bush block and acreage owners, your priority is connectivity
- Create a natural corridor, especially along a creek line if you have one
- Use your koala trees to link one neighbour’s vegetation to the next
This community project aims to revive Eurobodalla’s wild koala population
and will benefit the environment, our local businesses, cultural and heritage values.
Through citizen-science and collaboration with local landholders EKP will identify the large scale landscapes crucial to support koalas.
And with the help of volunteers like you, this iconic Australian native can bounce back from the fires and flourish again.
“Together we can bring back Koalas to Eurobodalla.”
