KOALA WOMAN SAYS
There were several sightings to the west of Woy Woy 10-15 years ago, but only one in the last 5 years. Koalas are probably extinct on the Central Coast. Further inland there are some reports near Wisemans Ferry. These numbers are hard to believe given the amount of bush, but it is very poor-quality habitat. Of course the best habitats have been cleared long ago because they have better soils.
Estimated AKF Koala Population: 30 - 50
Estimated Koala Habitat left: 81.6%
Estimated Federal Government Population: No data. No opinion.
Listed as vulnerable to extinction under the EPBC Act (May 2012)
