Koala Woman Says


Look at the discrepancy between AKF and government figures, and who is right? The huge range of 55-10,000 is totally meaningless and has no scientific merit.  Where did they get these figures? It’s not even a guess. The member needs to question the Federal Minister for the Environment on how this range was obtained. We know there are a few Koalas around Swan Hill, Edenhope and Stawell, we also know that Koalas have disappeared from the Grampians (e.g. Halls Gap) over the last few years.

Koala Numbers

Estimated AKF Koala Population: 200-400

Estimated Koala Habitat left: 35.3%

Estimated Federal Government Population: 55-10000

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