I know we make cute jokes about the Australian Koala and his qualifications to be known as a bear.
Nor are we sending them off to bear training camps
In all honesty we are proud that they are definitely not bears but are arboreal herbivorous marsupials native to Australia – The Koala
The simple facts are that Koalas are rapidly disappearing from the Australian landscape…
There are estimated to be less than 100,000 koalas remaining in Australia, considerably less due to the recent disastrous Victorian bush fires and Queensland floods.
It is incumbent on us to protect those koalas and endangered species remaining not only for our growing tourism industry but for future generations. Currently, Koalas are predicted to become extinct in the wild by 2020.
Considering we are in the Sixth Mass Extinction of all species, it is imperative that we understand that human survival depends on biodiversity.
The Wildlife Protection Council needs your financial assistance to help us protect our Koalas. An excellent webpage outlining all the problems facing Australia Wildlife.
Help us see the growth of a healthy Koala population in Australia.
