Researchers in the wild
Researchers from the Office of Environment and Heritage and Sydney University vets have recently been out in the field with our expert koala catcher to deploy ten more radio tracking collars. They are working in the Canyonleigh area as well as Kangaloon/Alpine to locate koalas and coax them to the ground. The vets then undertake health and condition checks and collars are fitted if appropriate. These extra collars have been purchased with the help of the Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife and generous Southern Highlands donors.
