The Koala Ecology Group (University of Queensland)
The Koala Ecology Group (KEG) is based in UQ’s School of Biological Sciences and examines a wide range of koala-related issues. Collectively, our research team has several decades experience with studying koalas throughout Australia. We aim to enhance koala conservation and management by improving our ecological understanding of this iconic Australian marsupial, to inform policy and on-the-ground decision-making.
Our research team is led by Dr William (Bill) Ellis, an expert koala ecologist who has been conducting field studies on koalas for more than two decades. Several years ago, Bill joined forces with Dr Sean FitzGibbon and Dr Robbie Wilson to form Queensland's leading koala ecology research team.
Currently, the KEG research team is involved in examinations of koala populations spread throughout Queensland. Major field sites include….
