Koala Management

Victoria’s Green Triangle koala population has expanded beyond its adopted native forest habitats in to the blue gum plantation estate. The blue gum industry, including PF Olsen Australia, continues to work in collaboration with local wildlife carers and the Victorian Government to improve practises and work towards our goal to achieve zero harm to koalas during forestry operations. PF Olsen Australia is an active member of the Green Triangle Regional Plantation Committee’s Koala Stakeholder Engagement Group. Chaired by PF Olsen staff member Anthony Walsh, the committee brings together government agencies, wildlife carers and industry representatives. This proactive group has developed a Guideline for Koala Management in Harvesting Operations. PF Olsen Australia’s Managing Director (Pat Groenhout) is the industry representative on the Victorian Government's Koala Management Leadership Group.
