So are we, but no matter how many times we put them up, it doesn’t seem to make a difference to the death toll.
Another healthy earthling was found dead at Bangalow, a casualty in the gravel beside the road.
President of the Bangalow Koalas group Linda Sparrow says that early last Friday she got yet another call from a member of the public regarding a dead adult male koala on Hinterland Way heading south just past the overpass near the Bangalow exit.
‘This is the fifth dead koala in Bangalow this year by car strike that I know of,’ said Ms Sparrow. ‘This section is notorious with four of the five koalas found in a triangle of less then 250 metres – Granuaille Rd/Hinterland Way.
‘I’m calling it the “Bermuda Triangle” as so many koalas are disappearing from here.’
Linda says the person who called it in was driving along this section on Tuesday night at 9.15pm when she saw a white Prado car pulled over with hazard lights on right at the spot where the koala was found.
‘It is devastating again to lose another healthy koala. All we can do is keep on telling people to slow down in koala areas.
Sparrow says that Hinterland Way in Bangalow is a bad koala kill hot spot and her group will do their utmost to ensure there is no increase in traffic on this section of the koala corridor.
‘I’m not sure what more we can do then continue to educate, make aware and advocate for our poor koalas.’
