Koalas spotted on night vision camera

Two koalas were recorded on night-vision cameras in Dharug National Park in August and September 2017.

This time of year marks the koala mating season, which starts in August and ends in February.

Mating season is a time of increased movement for koalas, as they leave their trees and disperse, running the risk of crossing paths with cars and dogs.

If you see a koala in the wild, report the sighting to the local NPWS office on 4320 4200.

Report injured koalas to WIRES or Wildlife ARC
