The Friends of Strzelecki Koala Project

The Victorian Government, through the Communities for Nature Program, funded the SGLN Friends of Strzelecki Koala (FOSK) – Habitat for Life Project in 2012. The project aimed to identify suitable koala habitat on private and public land; engage with landholders to protect and improve the condition of koala habitat through fencing and weed control; create native vegetation corridors to improve habitat connectivity across the Strzelecki and South Gippsland region and to engage with the broader community to increase awareness and understanding of koala conservation. The project ended in 2016, and finished with an impressive list of achievements.  SGLN has delivered funding to 65 on-ground projects which included:

  • 134 hectares of habitat protection and enhancement through fencing and woody weed control
  • 60.7 hectares of revegetation to create habitat linkages
  • 71,534 plants went into the ground, and
  • 26.34 kilometres of fencing were installed for both remnant and revegetation projects. Go to the FOSK project page
