Koala’s and Platypuses are Close By

The Friends of Berowra Valley ran a talk on the 7th May on our local koala population. Our speakers were volunteers associated with the local koala population initiative the Hornsby-Hills Rural Koala Project. They have been running an amazing program aimed at encouraging the health, protection and population increase of koalas in the Glenorie/Maroota/Arcadia/Hornsby areas.  With the help of camera traps and song meters they have been listening out for koalas.

We also heard from the Cattai Hills Environment Network on the local platypus eDNA testing at Cattai Creek.

Pat, Rae, Ken, Petra, Danielle, Karen, Lily, Benjamin and Brad all helped run this community event.
