Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner announced that the council was partnering with the University of Queensland to reintroduce koala to bushland sites across Brisbane at a cost of $800,000 over the next four years.

The sites like the Mount Coot-tha Reserve, the Karawatha Reserve, the Mastaeller Road Reserve at Mount Crosby, the Bayside Parkalands at Wynnum, Manly and Lota will be investiagated for the reintroduction of Koalas. ABC News reported.

“They’re the four initial sites where there is great quality bushland and lots of room to range,” Mr Schrinner said.

What that means is that the bushland areas like Mount Coot-tha where there are low population or where there are no longer koalas, people will start to see koalas in thore areas.

Mr Schrinner said that the sites were chosen due to their safety in a bid to prevent vehicle strikes.

“We’re looking forward to getting started on the four new areas as soon as possible,” he added.

Mr Schrinner indicated that the koalas that had previously been taken in and treated at koala hospitals will be the ones to be reintroduced to these areas.
