Koala Woman Says


This is another electorate that was originally mainly grassland with Koala habitat mainly along the watercourses where there are some old recorded sightings. No Koalas have been reported since two in 2005, so Koalas in Gordon are practically extinct if not totally extinct. If we are correct about this, then imagine the life these poor animals have on a daily basis.
