The Koala Recovery Partnership:
Working Together for Improved Koala Conservation

The Koala Recovery Partnership seeks to improve koala conservation across the Hastings-Macleay Region by engaging with landholders, the community, research groups and government sectors to achieve better on-ground koala conservation outcomes and on-going viability (or sustainability) for this iconic and important Australian species.

The Partnership is a joint venture under the Mid North Coast Joint Organisation (Port Macquarie-Hastings Council, Kempsey Shire Council, Bellingen Shire Council), with funding from the NSW Government Saving Our Species Koala Iconic Program, the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital and Port Macquarie-Hastings and Kempsey councils.

The Partnership welcomes and encourages collaborative endeavours with all stakeholders. The Partnership is hosted by the Mid North Coast Joint Organisation and administered by an Advisory Committee with appropriate technical knowledge and governance skills (see About Us). The Koala Recovery Partnership employs a full time Koala Ecologist to enact the projects set by the Advisory Committee (see About Us).

The Partnership conducts a variety of educational, scientific and on-ground projects that will contribute to protecting koalas and their habitat in the Hastings-Macleay Region (see About Us). READ MORE

The Hastings-Macleay region is a beautiful area located on the Mid North Coast of NSW. The area is administered by Kempsey Shire Council and Port Macquarie-Hastings Council (both part of the Mid North Coast Joint Organisation).
Koalas have been listed as a threatened species in NSW under the NSW Biodiversity Conservation Act. This means that unless action is undertaken, they are likely to go extinct in the wild in many areas of NSW within the next 50 years.
Koalas are one of the most recognised animals around the world! National Geographic conducted a world-wide survey of the top five iconic animals. The Koala featured in the top five along with Elephant, Lion, Whale and Panda.
