Koala Land Report
About the Report
Koala Land was born out of a report that has been commissioned through an initiative of the Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation by Al Mucci, General Manager of Life Sciences. The objective of the report is to consider ways of creating a sustainable future for koalas and people on the Koala Coast, South East Queensland, Australia.
This report recommends ways of protecting Koalas and Koala habitats. By presenting the perfect habitat for koalas, the report establishes and illustrates what is needed to maintain existing Koala habitats and to rethink sustainable environments where humans and Koalas can live side by side. The report brings together information from every possible applicable source, with statements and suggestions from specialist contributors, and providing a full picture of the koala situation right now and what we have to do to stop our koala from becoming extinct.
Despite the Federal Government’s 2012 decision to classify Queensland’s koalas as vulnerable and add them to the Threatened Species List, there remains a lot of work to be done to stabilise diminishing koala populations.
