Koala Woman Says
There were Koalas near Langwarrin as recently as 2007, since then half this habitat has gone for development. Ironically the new suburb is called Botanic Ridge…
Elsewhere in this electorate a Koala was reported at the Moorooduc Quarry Reserve in 2001, and a couple were seen in Mornington in 2007. We think Koalas are now extinct in this electorate.

The Victorian Government opposed the protection of the koala and there is no Federal protective legislation in place.
