Koala populations and habitat in New South Wales
New South Wales. Parliament. Legislative Council. Portfolio Committee No. 7 – Planning and Environment
released 30 June 2020
This inquiry was established because of significant concern in the community about the future of Australia’s most loved animal, the koala. Even before the devastating 2019-2020 bushfires it was clear that the koala in NSW, already a threatened species, was in significant trouble, with the committee finding that the official government estimate of 36,000 koalas contained in the NSW Koala Strategy is outdated and unreliable.
