Here is a very short photo story about a koala in Cleveland.
The Toondah Harbour Priorty Development Area
This koala was photographed leaving an area within the Toondah Harbour Priority Development Area.
The State Government and Redland City Council are negotiating with Walker Corporation about plans for real estate development in this area which may include buildings up to ten storeys high accommodating up to 2,000 new residents.
Any such development, which is under the control of the State Government, could result in significant loss of koala habitat trees in a known koala corridor linking G.J. Walter Park to the Eddie Santagiuliana Way.
Do we need stronger local laws to protect koala trees?
If any trees were to be lost as a result of high rise real estate development in the Toondah Harbour Priority Development Area, then koalas will have to rely on other mature trees in the local area.
In a recent post we discussed Protecting koala trees in Redland City.
Do you think we should save koalas by making tree protection local laws more effective?
Please complete the poll below and encourage others to do so as well.

The photos of the koala were taken by Veronica Hyland early one morning in September
So far as we know, no koalas were hurt in the making of this story.
