Round 2

Summary

This project addresses the critical issue of limited and highly fragmented/disconnected habitat for koala populations on the eastern Darling Downs. It aims to ensure that restoration of koala habitat on private lands (farmers) is evidence-based and planned strategically to enhance drought-resistance and connectivity to known drought refugia (e.g. riparian woodlands) to increase the resilience of koala populations across the landscape.

Benefits to the community

These activities will promote koala habitat restoration and management efforts on private land and increase landholders' skills and knowledge in multiple use on-farm management and resilient landscape planning. Re-vegetation efforts will extend the amount of quality koala habitat and provide essential habitat links both across the landscape and to drought refugia such as lowland/riparian woodlands for significant but at-risk koala populations on the eastern Darling Downs. Habitat links will also be of benefit to other native flora and fauna, helping to improve the overall biodiversity and ecology of the area.
