Great Koala National Park

Great Koala National Park

Koalas are one of the world's most beloved species. Once commonly found across the state, Koala populations in NSW are now in free fall. In the 1930's koala pelts from Bega in southern NSW were exported to Europe. Habitat loss has meant that this population numbers just 100. We need to take urgent action to ensure future generations will be able to see wild koalas in NSW.

The National Parks Association of NSW is campaigning for the Great Koala National Park (GKNP) in the Coffs Harbour hinterland. The GKNP will protect some of eastern Australia's most important koala populations and become a world class tourism draw card. China offers a valuable lesson: their action to protect giant panda habitat has resulted in World Heritage listing for their spectacular forests.
