IFAW welcomes NSW Labor's Great Koala National Park proposal

-->

IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) welcomes today’s policy announcement from the NSW Labor Party to create the Great Koala National Park.

"IFAW is in full support of this initiative as it recognises the desperate situation facing many koala populations across NSW, which are in dramatic decline and shows the necessary level of ambition required to prevent further local extinctions of one of Australia’s iconic and flagship animals," IFAW’s Native Wildlife Campaigner Josey Sharrad said.

IFAW calls on other parties to outline what steps they will take to protect koalas in NSW, if elected at the upcoming NSW election.
