Australia — A wildlife corridor may be planted through the south-west of thestate to help save wildlife in times of fire.

Lorraine O’Brien has lead the recovery operation to save hundreds of koalasburnt in the Framlingham Forest bushfire near Warrnambool earlier this year.

Ms O’Brien says the corridor would link the Grampians to the Otways, andColac west to the Lower Glenelg National Park.

“The reality is all wildlife will benefit from it and hopefully we’llsee reduced likelihood of a similar disaster happening because the animals won’tbe so intensively captured in a small area and not able to move – they’ll bedispersed of their own accord and hopefully there won’t be so many concentratedin one area,” she said.
