As detailed in Koala Clancy's Blogs -
Koala population decline in the You Yangs, Victoria tells about the plight of our koalas.
Yes, we know we have a problem. And once a problem is known, action can be taken to fix it.
Koala's need farmers! Up to 80% of wild koalas live on private land throughout Australia.
We organise targeted koala tree planting along waterways on farms. We plant locally-indigenous native trees and ecosystem species in the right location, so success rate is very high. Our planters are mature, experienced volunteers who pay a small fee to participate, which ensures their dedication. Many are members of Koala Clancy Foundation and their motivation is helping koalas.
A free Koalas and Tree Planting Information Session was held on Monday 19 November 2018 at Little River and many locals came along to - "Find out how to bring Koalas to YOUR property".
There were lots of conversations started and questions asked so there will be more to come.
Thank you to our volunteers, landowners where Koala Clancy Foundation has planted and those who are interested in our 2019 winter planting, as well as our friends from Melbourne Water, Landcare, City of Greater Geelong Councillors and local organisations and landowners who were involved in making the meeting a success.
We are keen to hear from more local landowners who are interested in finding out about where Koala Clancy Foundation can help!
Update - we have been very pleased with the response we have had since this special meeting - and we will be planting koala trees in 2019 on MORE private land!
We have planted the seeds and are looking after the next generation of koala trees ..... and always keen to hear from more local landowners.
Let's plant more trees for koalas!
Koalas need trees to survive and at the moment there just isn't enough for them to rely on. We want to change that. If you or anyone you know has property near the You Yangs we can come plant koala trees for you!
We are experts and will recommend the right plant species for your property. Not only will they help koalas, they will also improve productivity, increase land value and prevent erosion, along with many other benefits.
