You are invited to take part in the Great Victorian Koala Count on Saturday 7 November 2015.

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) is hosting the Great Victorian Koala Count and we'd love for you to get involved! We need you, our citizen scientists (aka Koala counters) to contribute to this worthwhile project, improving our knowledge of Koalas and where they are located in Victoria.   

Plan a walk with family or friends and tell us where you did and didn’t see Koalas. 

To take part in the count, register online at and then download the Great Victorian Koala Count smartphone app to record your findings on the day.

But fear not - even if you don't register you can still help with the count. If you spot any koalas on Phillip Island, feel free to contact the ranger's office at the Koala Conservation Centre on 5952 1307 and report your sighting. In fact, the rangers are keen to hear of your sightings on the island year round so if you spot a koala, give the rangers a call - they'd love to hear from you.Koala Count
