I spy . . . a koala

Pick up koala survey forms from Council Environment Centres, libraries and customer service desks, or download from Council’s web site.  An interactive mapping tool will also be available to record sightings at: www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/koalasurvey
Residents can play their part in protecting the region’s koalas and go into the draw for a family pass to Australia Zoo by taking part in Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Community Koala Survey from October 18 to 20. 
Strategic Planning spokesperson and Division Eight councillor Mick Gillam said taking part in koala conservation was as easy as keeping an eye out in your backyard or nearby park.
“There’s nothing like local knowledge and we’re asking residents to keep an eye out over one or two days, in their backyards and local parks for signs of koala activity,” Cr Gillam said. 
“Look for deep scratches in twos or threes in the lower trunks of trees, or grey koalas in branches, and record what you spot in our survey form.”
“The results help council care for our koala habitats and plan the right conservation activities, such as habitat plantings and protecting wildlife corridors.”
Cr Gillam said schools were also invited to participate in the survey on Friday 18 October.
