Draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation Strategy
The Queensland Government released the Draft South East Queensland Koala Conservation Strategy 2019–2024 for public consultation on 8 December 2019. Consultation closed on 31 January 2020.
This draft Strategy was developed in consultation with representatives from the conservation, building and development sectors, First Nations representatives, state and local government, through the Koala Advisory Council, to outline the actions needed to improve koala conservation.
In consulting on the draft Strategy, the Queensland Government received over 200 survey responses, plus a large number of written submissions.
During the consultation period, the Queensland Government hosted community information sessions at Aspley, Beenleigh, Bokarina, Currumbin, Daisy Hill, Ipswich and Morayfield, and spoke to hundreds of community members about koala conservation.
The Queensland Government also held several targeted stakeholder consultation sessions with all 12 South East Queensland local governments, and key representatives from conservation groups and industry bodies.
All feedback from these consultation activities will be analysed and used to inform the final Strategy, which is expected to be released this year.
