Koala conservation project
Koalas are one of Australia's most iconic animals, recognisable around the world. However, koala populations are under increasing pressure and have declined in NSW by around 26 per cent in the last 15 to 20 years. Without significant intervention, this level of decline is likely to continue.

The NSW Government has an ambitious goal of securing threatened species in the wild for the next 100 years. The koala conservation project is delivering local conservation actions to secure koalas through:
- Reducing critical threats to the species
- Ensuring adequate protection, management and restoration of koala habitat
- Maintaining healthy breeding populations of koalas throughout their current range
More project details can be found on the Saving our Species koala profile.
The NSW Koala Strategy is also committing $44.7 million to stabilise, then increase, koala population numbers across the state.
