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. Two Koalas were recorded in 2015, so Koalas in Gorton are practically extinct. If we are correct about this, then imagine the life these poor lonely animals have on a daily basis.

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