Koalas are under threat in many areas across Australia. The situation in South East Queensland is particularly concerning as urban growth puts them under constant pressure. Every day these precious, iconic animals are under threat from habitat loss, cars, dogs, bush fire and disease.
Queensland Koala Crusaders, along with many other conservation organisations, is working hard to slow the escalating and rapid decline in Australia’s wild koalas. If nothing is done, extinction will result in the not-too-distant future.
Here is some information you might find helpful. Koalas are truly fascinating animals. We even have characteristics in common with them.
