19 Jun 🐨Clarence Valley Koalas
Have you seen koalas in the Clarence Valley LGA? Would you like to contribute to collecting valuable data to help conserve this iconic species?
Clarence Valley Council is calling all citizen scientists, wildlife enthusiasts and koala lovers to help map koalas in the area!
To contribute to the project head to the Koalas in the Clarence Valley web page below and follow the instructions on the Koala Register tab to record your koala sighting, or record other evidence of koala activity (koala noises, scats or tree scratchings). You can upload a photo of your sighting too, which is helpful to determine things like the koala’s approximate age. You will need to register first to record your sighting. Alternatively you can download and fill in a Koala sighting form.
You can also help koalas by nominating suitable release sites for rehabilitated koalas to be returned into the wild by WIRES. If you think your property would make a suitable koala release site, you can nominate it! Head to the Release site nomination tab on the website for more information.
If you love emus just as much as koalas, Clarence Valley Council is also keen to learn about where you’ve seen coastal emus. You can record your sightings and share your emu stories at the Caring for our Coastal Emus web page
