Koala Conservation and Economics

20 Oct 2017

One the School of Economics’ top professors, Emeritus Professor Clement Tisdell has recently been published in the Australasian Journal of Environmental Management.

Professor Tisdell, in conjunction with natural scientists, has addressed the overarching failure to stop the decline in Koalas across Queensland. It was found that the policies in place are not cost-effective and are set up for failure. These policies, attempting to save Koalas from extension, are doomed to long-term failure as economic developments and urban expansions continue in Koala prime habitats. This publication in the Australasian Journal of Environmental Management provides new insights into Koala conservation and general wildlife conservation.
