Saving our Species koala conservation
Saving our Species is a conservation program that aims to maximise the number of threatened species that can be secured in the wild in NSW for 100 years.
The koala has been allocated to the iconic management stream of Saving our Species because of its significant social, cultural and economic importance.
The iconic koala species project under Saving our Species aligns with the NSW Koala Strategy and is a key mechanism for delivering the conservation through community action pillar.
$4 million has been allocated through the Saving our Species program to secure the koala in the wild. Through the Strategy an additional $1 million will be provided to local communities to deliver on-ground actions.
