SAVE SYDNEY'S KOALAS

South west Sydney has one of the only Chlamydia-free, healthy and growing koala populations in NSW. But urban development on the Cumberland Plain has fragmented and destroyed their habitat. 

We need to act fast if we’re to save Sydney’s Koalas. That’s what the Greens will do. We will: 

  • Declare an Upper Georges River Koala National Park.

  • Cancel the Macarthur Priority Growth Area, stop Stage 2 of the Gilead/Figtree Hill development and legislate urban growth boundaries for Sydney.

  • Map, protect and enhance Sydney’s Koala corridors including protecting all remaining endangered Cumberland Plain woodland.

  • Build underground koala crossings and exclusion fencing along Appin Road.

  • Establish and fund a ‘Koala Tourism Centre’ at Campbelltown.
