VOLUNTEERS are being sought to take part in the Great Koala Count to survey koala numbers and help direct efforts to conserve their habitat.
All you'll need to do is keep an eye out for koalas between November 7 and 17 this year, recording all sightings.
"Residents of the bushland shire have long been known for their efforts to conserve our unique wildlife and I'm confident there will be many people who sign up," Hornsby mayor Steve Russell said.
"Hornsby Shire Council strongly supports this initiative by the National Parks Association and urges all residents to get involved.
"The more people who take part in the survey, the more effective it will be.
"It's also sure to be fun.
"Heading out into our beautiful bushland looking for koalas is quite a nice way to spend time with your family."
