The koalas of Tanja State Forest are threatened by logging of their forest for 6,000 tonnes of woodchips. This newly discovered population is critical to the survival of far south coast koalas, which are on the brink of extinction. Logging must stop now if this much loved animal is to have a future in the region.

Recent Department of Environment & Heritage surveys have identified substantial increases in koala numbers in Tanja, Mumbulla &Murrah State Forests indicating that koala populations are expanding into unlogged habitat.
