The SKAT Hits the Fan - Protecting the Iconic Strzelecki Koala

Tuesday, 31 May 2022 - 9:30am to 10:00am

Today on Dirt Radio we speak with Michelle Baxter of the Strzelecki Koala Action Team (SKAT) about the iconic Strzelecki koala, Victoria's only endemic species of Koala and the difficulty the species faces from logging, fires and private land ownership in Victoria.

With news last week that the death of four Koalas have been reported in a planned burnoff of the Mount Richmond National Park, this is a very present threat to all koala species.

Find out how you can get involved with SKAT spending long weekends (like Michelle) hunting for koala gold.
