Each marker on KoalaTracker's koala map represents the individual mapping of a koala by a member, transforming the concept of Koala habitat from a bunch of pixels on a satellite map, to the actual location of koalas.
It is this that enables meaningful and effective action to save the koala.
It is self-funded by its creator Alex Harris, supplemented by donations. Please support this free resource.
About 50% of forests and woodlands within the historic range of koalas throughout Australia has been cleared for agriculture and urban development since 1788. Most of what was lush koala forest is now housing estates.
While many people have never seen a koala in the wild, they might just be traversing your backyard or streets, so it is important to know what to look for. Remember to map every sighting on KoalaTracker.
