Meet Birki & Noppy!

Who is Birki? 

Birki’s is a female koala residing in Kanangra-Boyd National Park, 2 hours west of Sydney, NSW. She's a proud mother with a joey, known for her fluffy appearance typical of koalas in colder climates.

Why are Birki and her friends ‘Rule Breakers’? 

These koalas reside in sandstone mountains above the 800-meter koala climate envelope, feeding on silvertop ash, challenging the norm.

What does Birki’s future look like? 

Birki, recently assessed and collared, offers insights into habitat use, threats, and joey survival. Monitoring continues to ensure her well-being.

What is Birki’s habitat? 

Birki’s habitat is a Gondwanan relic, boasting ancient forests with towering trees, vibrant grasses, and nutrient-rich soil, despite leech presence.

Where do you find the Birki’s habitat? 

Kanangra-Boyd National Park's steep sheltered slopes and gullies host dense canopies, attracting koalas and bushwalkers alike, with Ribbon Gum, Narrow-leaf Peppermint, and Mountain Blue Gum trees dominating.

What does Birki’s habitat look like? 

Ancient forests, home to vital koala trees, support biodiversity and thrive in moist conditions, essential for koalas' survival.
