Road ecology blog: Fence designed to keep koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) off the highway, M79, between Harcourt and Faraday, Victoria, Australia. This fence is about 2.1 m high, and the top 50 cm or so angles away from the road. The last 30 cm or so is not supported by the post and forms a ‘floppy top’ making it difficult to cross by climbing species such as koala.
