The Toowoomba Region Koala Count is returning this November 2022 for the start of the local koala breeding season.
Observing koala populations in the Toowoomba region will help researchers and conservationists understand the extent of the endangered species across the region. This event is organized by the Darling Downs Environment Council and the Save Mt Lofty Group.
You can become involved by becoming a spotter, or by learning more by following along in the inaturalist app or getting involved in the other suggestions in the images below.
Simple instructions on how to get involved:
If you haven't managed to see a koala in the wild, you can still participate and view others records in the project, comment and educate yourself on the areas that koalas can be found.
If this is all a bit too hard, please forward your koala sightings on to Toowoomba Koala and Wildlife Rescue either by messenger on facebook, email or text to 0458 155 177 and remember to include location and date and we will upload your sighting for you.
Thankyou to all participating and the organisers especially and happy koala spotting!
