Since 2013, FoE has been mapping koala habitat in the Strzelecki Ranges We have mapped over 150 sites during this time. This region contains Victoria’s only endemic koala population. Its’ survival is vital to the long term future of the animal in south eastern Australia.
FoE has recently compiled a unique mapping tool which includes past koala survey sites and siting data. https://strzkoala.australianmap.net/
We urgently need your help to help us locate further koala sites throughout the Strzeleckis.
By mapping key areas we can identify koala hot spots and lobby for greater protection of these areas, through reduced burn-offs, reduced tree felling and implementation of better road signage. All new data funded through your donation will be added to the map.
In July 2018 the Victorian State Government reserved 2400ha of forest in the Strzeleckis, a result of our long term campaigning in the region.
