A koala and wildlife habitat is on the way to becoming established on the northern Gold Coast, following the planting of more than 90,000 trees at Pimpama Conservation Reserve.

Spanning an area about the size of Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens, the plantings were delivered by Energex, SEQ Catchments and the City of Gold Coast as part of offset commitments for upgrades to energy distribution networks in the Gold Coast region.

“Partnering with SEQ Catchments and the City of Gold Coast has provided Energex with an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to the City’s biodiversity, while a number of power lines are upgraded to meet the City’s needs,” Energex group manager Environment Mark Paton said.
