Project Description

Tregeagle Landcare Group is working with Envite Environment bush regenerators to restore and connect significant koala habitat and monitor koalas. This is a priority area (Lismore City Council Koala Management Plan) for the long term survival of koalas in the area. Lantana has been impeding koala movement and access to food trees and with camphor laurel and privet is restricting regeneration. Recommendations of the Tregeagle Landcare Target Area Restoration Plan are guiding ecological restoration involving systematic weed control in primary koala habitat. Connectivity of habitat is being increased through small scale revegetation. Koalas monitoring data is entered in the Friends of the Koala database to guide management. Field days develop skills and capacity to restore habitat.
