Koala Woman Says
Koalas appear to have been widespread over the western half of this electorate up until 20 years ago, but between 2010 – 2019 there were only four records, all along the Yarra River on the southern boundary of this electorate.. It would be great to hear if we are wrong about this and we would like to hear from the community if they know of secure koala populations. Given the amount of habitat there probably is a chance of recovery.

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