The significance of Strzelecki koalas in relation to the translocated koala populations of Victoria and South Australia.
The are two distinct koala populations in Victoria and South Australia. One is the endemic Strzelecki koala of South Gippsland Victoria and the other being koalas translocated from Victorian island populations throughout Victoria and South Australia. This is a significant yet little understood phenomenon. The Strzelecki koalas consist of the original diverse gene pool, whereas the translocated populations have gone through a "genetic bottleneck" resulting in much lower genetic diversity. The Strzelecki koalas therefore, are crucial to animal's future in Victoria and South Australia. However their numbers are low, possibly as low as 1500 animals.

The other entrenches current health, social and economic inequities, and worsens our climate and biodiversity crises.
