Efforts to halt the decline of koalas in the wild in NSW became a little clearer this week but the battle to save the beloved marsupial is more at the “end of the beginning” rather than “the beginning of the end”

Ron Land, president of Port Stephens Koalas, a group of volunteers that helps rescue and care for sick and injured marsupials on the NSW mid-North Coast, scoffs at claims the so-called koala wars are over in the state., Land predicts this week’s truce over koala planning policy between the NSW Liberals and Nationals will be bad news for an animal already listed as vulnerable in the wild.

However, several key issues remain unresolved, threatening to reignite divisions that came close to breaking the Coalition government last September. Doubts the new policy will reverse the decline have fanned interest in other steps, such as creating a Great Koala National Park inland from Coffs Harbour. The apparent haste to quell bickering between Liberals and Nationals also stirred doubts that the best processes had been at work.

Yet barilaro wants to save the brumbies? This lot have to be the most incompetent government in history.

World comments please. Help to save our Koalas. The Developers have knocked down trees killing the koalas and their babies on the spot. Roads have been built and this has done the same thing. The cars run over them when they are crossing the roads. Fire has killed so many of them

Gladys the koala killer.
