Bid to map koalas

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

NORTH Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil is to start a project to mon­i­tor and map the lo­ca­tion of koala pop­u­la­tions across the re­gion. Act­ing Man­ager of En­vi­ron­men­tal Ser­vices Mike Moller told the coun­cil at a tech­ni­cal ser­vice meet­ing on Novem­ber 2 all mon­i­tor­ing and map­ping data would be kept con­fi­den­tial. This was due to pos­si­ble con­cerns from land own­ers about what the in­for­ma­tion could be used for by third par­ties. Mr Moller said the coun­cil hoped con­tri­bu­tions from the com­mu­nity could help fund the project. No money has yet been set aside by the coun­cil for the project.
