Pittsworth Landcare is urging town and country residents to check their backyards for koalas this Saturday 27 August.
“The annual survey is a snapshot of where koalas are found across the district. It is conducted late winter each year when koalas are most active,” said Mrs Whitton, President of Pittsworth District Landcare Association.
“The online survey form is easy to complete and located on the Pittsworth Landcare website www.pittsworthlandcare.com.
“Keen koala spotters can sign up to the Community Survey Koala App. The App is designed for GPS enabled mobile devices and can be used to collect records all year round. The App easily records location, pictures and a few details for consistent and scientifically robust records.
“The surveys are providing essential information about the local koala population. We are encouraging as many people as possible to participate. The results from the surveys will be presented at the Pittsworth Landcare AGM,” Mrs Whitton said.
