If you are talented at creating catchy messages, then here is a competition for you.
The challenge has gone out to design a message to appear on an electronic traffic sign to encourage drivers to slow down to minimise koala road strike.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council natural resources manager Blayne West said the aim was also to raise awareness about koala road strike and start a conversation in the community.
"We are looking for lots of great, snappy slogans," she said.
The winner will also receive a koala adoption through Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.
The competition closes on August 20 and more information is available on the council's website.
Gordon Street, between Widderson Street and Findlay Avenue, and Ocean Drive near the golf course are koala road strike black spots.
Mrs West urged people to think about their personal responsibility when it came to protecting our koala population.
Steps can be as simple as slowing down while driving to minimise koala road strike, being a responsible dog owner or planting a koala food tree.
