Help save our koala
FEDERAL Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss and his wife Lyn are regularly visited by koalas in their yard, prompting them to call on people to assist in the koala’s conservation.
A conservation initiative, Koala Diaries Project Location – Koala Sighting Census has been established by Sunshine Coast residents Carolyn Beaton and Alex Harris to spot koalas and plot their location. By recording sightings of koalas on the www.koaladiaries.com.au website, it will help Koala Diaries identify where koalas are and map their population in specific areas.
“My wife frequently scans our trees looking for koalas and we are often visited by mother and joey and occasionally by larger males," Mr Truss said.
“By tracking the changes in the population, we can gain a better understanding of how we can ensure the survival of the species. I’m hoping as many people as possible join and contribute to Koala Diaries Project Location – Koala Sighting Census to help secure the future of koalas.”
