Register your Land for Koala Conservation

Are you a landholder in the Campbelltown and Appin/Wilton areas? Looking to give back to the environment and help save one of our most iconic species? You may be eligible for funding to assist in restoration activities for increasing, connecting and enhancing koala habitat across Southwest Sydney.

Southwest Sydney is home to 250-500 koalas. The population is considered to be healthy and uniquely free from chlamydia. The NSW Koala strategy aims to stabilise and increase Koala numbers. Conservation actions will be encouraged in Campbelltown and Appin/Wilton areas to help conserve the species. Greater Sydney Landcare is working in partnership with the NSW Koala strategy to implement actions identified as a priority.

On-ground restoration activities available for funding include:

  • Tree planting (including site preparation)
  • Weed control/Bush regeneration
  • Fencing
  • Purchase of seedlings
  • Cultural/ecological burning

This project provides a unique opportunity for landholders to manage their property for the benefit of koalas, other wildlife, and the broader ecosystem.
