Over the weekend, thanks to an eagle-eyed member of the public, two more koalas in Canyonleigh were collared. Local resident Anna spotted a koala on Tugalong Rd on Saturday morning and alerted OEH officer Lachlan who happened to be in the area. Masters student Dympna mobilised from Sydney to pick up the koala catching gear from Coledale. Koala catcher George also happened to be close by and so Quebec was added to the mix of collared koalas. Not long after releasing Quebec, the team spotted another koala (Romeo) and collared him also. This brings the total number of collared koalas to 12. Eight more of the donor collars to go!
