Riverina

KOALA WOMAN SAYS

 

There are a very few Koalas around Wagga. There are hardly any Koalas in the rest of this electorate and this is a puzzle. Perhaps they never recovered from the fur trade, and with less than 10% of habitat left it’s a wonder there are any at all. This electorate now includes parts of the Calare and Parkes electorates but this has done nothing to increase numbers in this electorate.

KOALA NUMBERS

Estimated AKF Koala Population: 50 - 100
Estimated Koala Habitat left: 7.8%
Estimated Federal Government Population: No data. No opinion. 
Listed as vulnerable to extinction under the EPBC Act (May 2012)
