Koala Woman Says


This electorate has the lower section of Onkaparinga River Park in it, but there are hardly any trees so few Koalas are reported from there. Imagine if the natural eucalypt woodland was restored, then Koalas would be less likely to meet with misadventure from cars and dogs (and even disease) as they do in places like Morphett Vale and Happy Valley to the north. Not so happy for Koalas…
