Koala Threatened If Pine Creek Project Begins Say MNC Greens

December 10, 2013

MNC Greens spokesperson Carol Vernon and NSW parliamentarian Cate Faehrmann are calling attention to the threat to koalas in Pine Creek State Forest.


MNC Greens spokesperson Carol Vernon and NSW parliamentarian Cate Faehrmann are calling attention to the threat to koalas in Pine Creek State Forest.


THE community is being urged to contact NSW politicians and draw attention to threatened species in Pine Creek State Forest.

 

Mid North Coast Greens say the NSW Forest Corporation propose to commence road upgrading then logging of the most important koala habitat in compartments 26 and 27 as early as this Monday.

 

The Pine Creek area has been recognised as one of the best remaining koala populations on the coastal lowlands of NSW.

 

It has also been recognised as a breeding colony and a source for populations in adjoining areas, and potentially right throughout the Coffs Harbour- Guy Fawkes meta-population.

 

Data collected shows the Pine Creek koala population has collapsed by 75% over the past 10 years.

Other threatened species recorded in the area include the yellow-bellied glider, the spotted-tailed quoll, the powerful, masked and sooty owl, the giant barred frog, glossy black cockatoo and square-tailed kite.

 

The Greens say concerns should be directed to the Premier’s office or those of the Primary Industry or Environment Ministers.
