Save this Koala forest at Brandy Hill

About this Climate Action

A quarry at Brandy Hill, near Port Stephens, has applied to clear 100 football fields of core koala habitat.

The forest is an “area of regional koala significance” and breeding koalas have been recently seen in the area.

In July, the NSW Government waved through a proposal to destroy 50 hectares of prime koala habitat to expand a quarry at Brandy Hill in the Hunter. Now, the federal Environment Minister has the final say.

Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley has delayed her final decision on whether to save 50 hectares of core koala habitat at Brandy Hill in NSW until October 13th. 

She’s considering new expert evidence that the site is breeding habitat and an important connecting corridor for koalas. 

We have a short window of time to show Sussan Ley the community wants her to save this koala forest and protect NSW koalas from extinction. Send an urgent message today.
