These koalas and their habitat have been extensively studied since 2007, with programs that focus on improving knowledge of koala distribution and of habitat needs and that support the development of management programs to assist koala conservation across a matrix of land tenures.
In 2017 the NSW government established the 12,000 ha Murrah Flora Reserve, in part to assist the conservation of these koalas. This extended the forest reserve system in these coastal forests to 30,000 ha.
This population of koalas is important because of:
- its geographic location within the wider distribution of koalas across eastern Australia
- its unique genetics, habitat use and history
- the level of stakeholder commitment to its ongoing conservation.
