Expert quits over road threat to Wardell koalas

Expert quits over road threat to Wardell koalas: "A koala expert has quit after a NSW government backflip resulted in ecologists being phoned as they were surveying for koalas in the bush near Wardell on the north coast and told to stop.

Roads and Maritime Services has been accused of endangering a rare ancestral koala population with the genetic diversity needed to ensure the survival of koalas on the NSW coast, because of pressure to avoid delays in the Pacific Highway upgrade."
