Joel and Lolita

Joel and Lolita have called the Redlands their home since Dec 2021. As nature lovers, they enjoy being out in the bush connecting with their environment and doing their bit for Mother Earth and all the beings that live here. Looking for wildlife wherever they go comes naturally to them, so they were delighted to discover that there were koalas in their neighborhood. Since 2022, they have submitted close to 30 sightings on the Redlands Koala Watch app with a view to helping researchers with important data as well as monitoring the health of this now endangered species.

They are also involved in other aspects of koala conservation through koala surveys, participating in community events, contributing to the improvement of the Redlands Koala Watch app, writing petitions to local government representatives and national leaders to voice their views on upcoming projects, and planting trees to increase koala habitat as members of the Koala Action Group (KAG). They hope their efforts will help support and sustain future generations of koalas in South East Queensland.

Be a part of a brand new koala conservation initiative the South East Queensland Coordinated Koala Count. In this groundbreaking effort, local councils and community organisations are collaborating with Social Marketing @ Griffith and the Queensland Government's Department of Environment and Science. Mark your calendars for the kick-off on September 30th. Your active participation has the potential to create a lasting impact on koala conservation.
