Caboolture West Koalas

Koala Mapping.
Plans for a massive new community development, west of Caboolture, have met a major hurdle just days after the formal announcement by the state government.

It has been discovered that 35.6% of the 6,400ha site, has been mapped as critical koala habitat.

The CEO of the Koala Foundation, Deborah Tabart, said she was totally unaware of the proposed development.

"I'm shocked that the government has signed off on such a major project without any consultation," Ms  Tabart said.

Ms Tabart called on developers to publicly disclose where they planned to build the houses and other major infrastructure.

She also wanted to know how the development could go ahead without devastating the koala population.
