Surviving and thriving

QTFN’s research partnership with the University of Queensland’s Koala Ecology Group is providing vital information on the movements, health and habits of the koala population at Koala Crossing.

Data from Spot Assessment Technique (SAT) surveys conducted in 2015 and 2019 show Koala Crossing’s koala population has increased in density, with the proportion of sites with koala activity increasing from 75 per cent to 83 per cent.

In 2020, opportunistic scat surveys conducted across the property confirmed active koala occupancy, providing further proof of a healthy (and growing) koala population.
