Andrew with ‘Indi’ the Koala (August 2012)

I stopped by Australia Zoo this week to announce new Government policy around the protection of koalas.  The Koala Habitat Program is part of a range of actions being taken by the Queensland Government to address the declining koala population in Queensland.  Up to $22.5 million will be invested between 2012 and 2015 to strategically acquire land in South East Queensland to:

•create new koala habitat
•increase the connectivity of South East Queensland’s mature koala habitat
•provide additional recreational opportunities for the community wherever possible

More information can be found on this policy by visiting – www.ehp.qld.gov.au
