Meeting at arboretum discusses koala relocation
The potential translocation of koalas to the Brisbane Water National Park was discussed at a meeting at the Crommelin Native Arboretum in Pearl Beach on Monday, December 6.
Representatives of the University of Sydney, the University of Newcastle, the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Central Coast Council attended the meeting.
Convenor of the Pearl Beach Koala Project Ms Ann Parsons described it as a "great meeting".
"Song meters will be placed in Brisbane Water National Park as well as drones being used to detect the presence or absence of koalas.
"The presence of suitable trees and habitat will also be investigated.
"There will be a meeting early next year with the community to discuss the project," she said.
