Koala carers have written to the NSW Premier saying that without koala habitat protection, their work caring for koalas can only be a Band-Aid solution.
"The continuing loss of bushland is not only forcing more koalas into care, it is making it harder every year for carers to find healthy habitat where koalas can be safely released."
They are calling for three key solutions:
- Strengthen koala protections in key laws and codes.
- Declare the 175,000ha Great Koala National Park and the 7,000ha Sandy Creek Koala Park.
- Protect koala habitat from intensified logging under weakened forestry regulations.
Please email your member of NSW Parliament to alert them to this letter and implement these key protections for koalas and their habitat.
