Clarke-Connors Range Koala Protection Project
Fitzroy Basin Association (FBA) and CQUniversity (CQU) are inviting landholders in the Clarke-Connors Range to participate in their Koala Protection Project. Populations of koalas have thrived in this area while experiencing declines in other regions. This project aims to partner with landholders to ensure the ongoing health of the koala population into the future.
FBA is inviting landholders in the project area to participate in the project, potentially receiving funding to assist with habitat management and to contribute their knowledge of local koalas.
The first step in this project is data collection. The data will be used to make a meaningful koala management plan for the Clarke-Connors Range and to track the results of on-ground action.
If you live in the project area and would like to be involved in this exciting new project please complete the form below by 29 October 2021.
