Conservation groups are dismayed about a court ruling which could see 262 koalas moved from their natural habitat. The case centres on the Shenhua Watermark coal mine in northern New South Wales.

But the New South Wales Land and Environment Court ruled that the mine's approval was valid. Sarah Sedghi reports.
