Track & Catch Koalas - Sometimes the trees are not straight and the koalas can be caught more quickly (and hence, less stressfully) by encouraging them to the small outer branches of the tree where they can’t hang on and will fall. The catching team will always have a tarp ready to catch the koala, and be wearing helmets with visors to make sure they are able to see the koala at all times without being injured by any falling debris. In the background there is always an experienced ‘spotter’ to keep an eye on the koala and make sure the tarp is in the right location to catch the falling koala. Remember that koalas often fall out of there trees by themselves (especially when mating or fighting), so to catch them this way is no more stressful then their day to day lives.
