Year 4 at Mullumbimby’s Shearwater Steiner school spent last Wednesday helping plant a koala corridor at Myocum. The Koala Connections project is a partnership program between Byron and Tweed Shire Councils and aims to restore 225 hectares of koala habitat. Koalas have faced a number of threats recently and are now classified as a Vulnerable Species at both state and federal level. If you would like to help out, call Byron Shire Council on 6626 7068 or for more information on the project go to www.byron.nsw.gov.au/koala-connections.
