To support Northern New South Wales’ rapidly declining Koala population, FNPW awarded a grant to Friends of the Koala Inc to expand its East Lismore nursery by 80,000 trees for the food and shelter of Australia’s koala population.

The grant awarded to Friends of the Koala Inc. will extend the capacity of its current nursery to plant a total of 100,000 trees per year. This will be a major step in supporting the recovery of New South Wales’ North Coast and the Gondwana Rainforest World Heritage Area, of which 50% was devastated by the fires, destroying the habitats of thousands of native animals.

The “Remarkable Southern Flinders” proposal, put forward by The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, is set to receive a $10 million cash injection.

The project aspires to turn Mr Remarkable and the Southern Flinders Ranges into a world-class adventure tourism destination.

CEO of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, Ian Darbyshire said that this project would be a valuable addition to Australia’s National Parks.

“As the charity partner of Australia’s National Parks, we are thrilled to support this project that builds on the Parks 2025 vision for South Australia. This project will support the creation of a new national park precinct of over 30,000 hectares and create a world-class tourism asset which will provide access to nature and economic benefits for local communities long into the future.”

Before the Black Summer fires savaged Australia’s landscapes there were signs that some populations of koalas were beginning to stabilise after years of terrible decline.

Up to a third of the surviving population was killed in the fires, and if trends continue the WWF predicts the animal will be extinct in the state by 2050.

The Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, in partnership with Friends of the Koala Inc, L'occitane and One Tree Planted, launched an expansion of the charity’s tree planting efforts.

On a warm wet morning, the volunteers showed off neat ranks of over 25,000 saplings, ready to be planted in fire-ravaged habitats. With the extra funding, they will produce another 240,000 feed and habitat trees over the next three years and expand the adjoining koala hospital, which already receives up to 400 patients a year.
