Lunc and Learn - Koalas of the Macarthur Region


Join us for our next Lunch and Learn at Wirrimbirra focusing on the Koalas of the Macarthur Region.

The Foundation has a long established relationship with Koala interests. You will know that Wirrimbirra is located in the area where european settlers first came into contact with the Koala.

You may also be aware that David G. Stead, the Foundation’s inspiration, was credited with saving the Koala from extinction in the late 1920’s. Nearly 100 years later, our understanding of koalas has increased and so have the threats.

Lachlan Wilmott, a Threatened Species Officer with the Office of Environment and Heritage, will be talking about the Koala situation, south of Sydney.

The local population do not suffer from the diseases that affect so many other Koala areas and their numbers are on the rise with increased sightings and a colony of over 300 in the Campbelltown area.

Enjoy a smorgasbord style lunch, the pleasant surrounds of the sanctuary and take a wander through the Fauna Protection Area.
