Habitat

Wildlife Habitat Group (WHG) was initially formed to preserve wildlife habitat through a focus on iconic species preservation, initially the koala, within the urban and peri-urban areas of Armidale and more broadly across the Armidale Regional Council area.

As pressure increases on native populations through climate change and land-clearing for housing and agriculture, WHG hopes to work with Armidale Regional Council, and other relevant bodies, to inform and educate about the importance of conserving our native fauna and flora through strategies such as the Council’s register of koala sightings and the development of a regional Koala Plan of Management. We plan to widen our concerns into river-care as resources expand.
