Restoring native habitat.


Brendale Koala Habitat
Rehabilitation Project
Bult Drive Brendale Queensland

Moreton Bay Regional Council Community Assistance Scheme Grant (formerly known as Pine Rivers Council Community Assistance Scheme Grant) - $5,000

This was a joint venture between KAI members and the Pine Rivers Catchment Association. It was our intention to replant koala food trees and other natives on a partially cleared area of unused parkland.

Exotic tree species, weeds and grasses were removed to encourage natural regeneration. This will enhance existing koala habitat.


The site was marked prior to spraying to remove weeds. Subsequently,  mulch was  purchased, delivered and spread over the site before the holes were dug. A total of 1000 assorted native trees and plants were planted including 425 koala food trees.

The grant included a watering regime of approximately three litres of water per plant on three separate occasions.

Our commitment extended to undertaking two years of maintenance on all sites which includes manual removal of weeds surrounding the plant and the use of a broad-spectrum systemic Glyphosate herbicide to remove weed and grass species that negatively impact on the growth of the plants.
