WILDLIFE conservationists are staging a peaceful protest at a development site in Tinana on Wednesday morning after a section of "prime koala habitat" was cleared without warning.

Maryborough conservationist Natalie Richardson said the area in Henderson Park estate was home to at least half-a-dozen koalas at any given time.

She and other wildlife carers are searching through felled trees for koala remains.

The bulldozing crews have ceased clearing work.

Full report in Thursday's Fraser Coast Chronicle.
