Today on Dirt Radio we speak with Michelle Baxter of the Strzelecki Koala Action Team (SKAT) about the iconic Strzelecki koala, Victoria's only endemic species of Koala and the difficulty the species faces from logging, fires and private land ownership in Victoria.
With news last week that the death of four Koalas have been reported in a planned burnoff of the Mount Richmond National Park, this is a very present threat to all koala species.
Find out how you can get involved with SKAT spending long weekends (like Michelle) hunting for koala gold.
You will need to click through to the 3CR website for podcasts as we don't want to support Spotify whilst they continue to host purveyors of misinformation.
