Furry sighting at Beulah

 

Yesterday the bush care contractors working on the Beulah Biobank site took this photo through binoculars of a koala on the property.

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.
