Queensland Koala Habitat Mapping

Runge, Claire A; Rhodes, Jonathan R; Lopez-Cubillos, D Sofia

This dataset maps koala habitat across Queensland, excluding south-east Queensland. 

Predictions of koala habitat in Queensland were developed using a protocol adapted from that used to map habitat in SEQ (DES 2020). Briefly, regional ecosystems were ranked according to their predicted utility to koalas and overlaid with predictions of the environmental suitability of the landscape for koalas to generate a predicted ranking of utility of habitat for koalas in each planning unit.

This dataset was developed to inform broad-scale conservation planning associated with the National Koala Recovery Plan. The spatial resolution is 1km (100ha) and it is not intended for identifying habitat at a fine scale. The dataset has not been ground-truthed. Some areas identified as potential habitat may be too degraded or contain insufficient resources for koalas to occupy. Koalas may be present outside the areas identified as potential habitat. For uses within the South-East Queensland planning area we recommend using alternate mapping (DES 2020. Spatial modelling for koalas in South East Queensland: Report version 1.0. Koala Habitat Areas (KHA) v1.0).
