This program will support koala recovery and conservation efforts. It will provide an understanding of the size, status and trend of the national koala population. It will also build a long-lasting ability to monitor koala populations.
We are partnering with CSIRO to deliver this program. The first phase has been completed. This included stakeholder engagement, co-design and pilot surveys. The next phase of the program will focus on national delivery.
The NKMP supports the implementation of the National Recovery Plan for the listed koala and will help inform future listing re-assessments of all koala populations. It will also inform future recovery efforts.
The program is engaging the community, citizen scientists, First Nations people and researchers. Together, we will deliver effective and efficient monitoring outcomes.
