Koala Woman Says


There would have been koalas in this landscape at white settlement, but they are practically gone with only two sightings in the last 15 years. Most of this electorate was originally grassland, what Koala habitat was there has been practically totally cleared with a small fragmented strip remaining along the Werribee River.
