Large, healthy Koala colony discovered in Heathcote National Park

Two local environmentalists Steve Anyon-Smith and Tom Kristensen have spent the last 8 months searching for Koalas in Heathcote National Park with remarkable success.

They have photographed 63 individual koalas in locations across the park. Even better news is that this is a healthy, chlamydia free, breeding population. Lone males, females and mothers with joeys have all been sighted.
