SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Koalas need connectivity

Koalas have home ranges and attachments to particular trees, but they also need to move – to escape fire and to live, breed, expand their gene pool and maintain disease resistance.

The Macarthur region in Sydney is host to a historically continuous population of koalas, known as the Campbelltown population.

The population of between 250 and 500 koalas is surviving in a landscape that is predominantly native bushland, connected to rural farmland or peri-urban environment. It is one of the few remaining populations in the Sydney region and is considered to be healthy plus uniquely Chlamydia free.

How can they be protected?

Let’s create a connected network across the 3 levels of government. ????

That's a good idea! We're about to start a reward crowdfunding campaign and one of the rewards people can buy is a position on an IdeaSpies Community Council. Maybe this could be a project for the Council to set up...
