Furry sighting at Beulah
The surrounding Appin area is known as koala habitat and the contractors have seen the occasional evidence of animals in the bush but this is the first actual sighting.
In fact, it is the first documented sighting on the property in over 60 years.
This particular koala is a large dominant female and has established territory just south-east of the homestead. It is expected that male koalas will now be attracted to the area by the female.
The Beulah Biobank - 60 hectares of endangered Cumberland Plains Woodland - provides habitat and a wildlife corridor between the Georges and Nepean Rivers.
