What absolutely fantastic news that the Tweed Shire is finally to have a koala plan of management!

This is a blueprint that will cover most of the shire and provide ground rules to ensure future developments will have to consider the needs of our Tweed koalas, which are desperately in need of protection.

The plan will let us count and track our koalas using the latest technology  making it possible to have scientific best practice.

Many, many thanks to the councillors and staff of Tweed Shire Council as well as our amazing community for their efforts.

We look forward to this new chapter in the Tweed koalas story and look forward to every one participating in this exciting stage of helping our Tweed koalas.

Jenny Hayes, Team Koala
