KOALA WOMAN SAYS

 

This area of Victoria cannot have the 7000 animals that the Government asserts. We know that Koalas have been declining in the Mt Macedon – Hanging Rock area for 15 years, and there are a few around Castlemaine. Sightings are rare elsewhere in this electorate, the habitat is highly fragmented and we do not believe the Victorian Government has any data to prove this density.

KOALA NUMBERS

Estimated AKF Koala Population: 200 - 400 
Estimated Koala Habitat left: 49.2%
Estimated Federal Government Population: 3000 - 7000 
The Victorian Government opposed the protection of the koala
and there is no Federal protective legislation in place.
