Do you think the combination of habitat acquisition, private land conservation and habitat restoration is the right approach to protecting important koala habitat?

How can landholders be better supported to protect, restore and enhance koala habitat on their land?

What can the NSW Government do to better support the wildlife carer sector?

These are some of the questions that the NSW Government is seeking community input on via its Reviewing the NSW Koala Strategy discussion paper to be released in the lead-up to the Koala Summit at Taronga Zoo on 22 March 2024.

The summit will bring together key stakeholders to review how actions, targets and delivery approaches are working to save koalas around the state.

“Our community in Campbelltown is so passionate about wildlife conservation and I encourage everyone to take this opportunity to give their feedback,” Member for Campbelltown Greg Warren said.

The Reviewing the NSW Koala Strategy discussion paper invites feedback on initiatives including koala habitat protection, supporting local communities, improving the safety and health of koalas, koala monitoring and research and responses to the impact of climate change.

“Everyone who cares about the future of our precious koalas is encouraged to provide their views,” Minister for Climate Change and the Environment Penny Sharpe said.

The NSW Government is committed to protecting and ensuring the long-term survival of koalas in the wild and the discussion paper will supplement advice from the Koala Summit on future conservation priorities.

Consultation on the online discussion paper will close on 26 April 2024.
