High schools in Sydney will resume normal operations today, as detectives investigate the source of threatening emails that forced the evacuation of more than 20 schools yesterday

Federal Environment Minister Sussan Ley has said approval of a rock quarry expansion north of Newcastle is a « good result for koala conservation »

The Brandy Hill project in Port Stephens is reportedly clearing 52 hectares of koala habitat, but granting final approval yesterday Ms Ley said another 74 hectares will be revegetated as a koala corridor

The project faced fierce opposition from local residents and environmentalists who said the quarry area contained breeding koalas, but Ms Ley said her expert had found no evidence of that

« If I thought that the actions proposed under this proposal would push back the local koala population, I wouldn’t have approved it or found a way [to say] sorry it didn’t happen « , Mrs Ley said

However, he said « no stretch of the imagination » could have made him believe that firefighters were going to fight a 520,000 hectare blaze
