The Koala Habitat Restoration Project

December 20, 2023

By Kelly Smith – Koala Awareness Project officer 

Formally the Tyabb to Tooradin Bio-link, The Koala Habitat Restoration Project is now extended to cover Tyabb ALL the way to Bass. This decision has been made to include the Western Port Woodlands within the projects target area. A recent genetic study by The Western Port Biosphere Foundation discovered 3 koalas of the hugely important Strzelecki genome. It is essential to enhance, protect and preserve koala habitat in order to strengthen their genetic diversity and to allow movement. More habitat = more koalas and more biodiversity of the Woodlands.
In addition to this extension of the project area, all landowners who revegetate their properties in 2024, will receive two free entry tickets to Moonlit sanctuary plus 2 free Koala encounters, valued at $108. We thank our partners Moonlit Sanctuary for their generous support.
