Their partnership, Koala Venture, started about 15 years ago to study the habitat and diet of the koalas living near the Blair Athol Mine. In a new stage of the partnership, koalas will be fitted with special satellite tracking collars. They hope to understand the way a koala sees its surroundings, and of course to better manage the koala population, their safety and security.
Apparently, these koalas are lucky, because other studies say that they could be extinct in 15 years. You'll find more details in this overview, including a photograph of a koala receiving a regular health check as part of the Koala Venture program.
