Green Army launches battle to help koalas at Tullera

THE second stage of two Green Army projects at Tullera, which will improve habitat for koalas, have been launched.

One Green Army team is working with Friends of the Koala, and by the end of this project participants will have planted more than 7000 koala food trees, working with private landholders to improve habitat.

The second team will work with Lismore City Council to control invasive weeds, which limit koala movements and block access to food trees.
