Endangered Species

Koalas

Why is this endangered?

  • Habitat Loss - continual habitat loss caused by progressive human settlement
  • Hunting - Hunting up until the early 20th century reduced koala population from over 3,000,000 to less than 100,000
  • Fires - bush fires, that are often lighted deliberately,
  • Accidents - dogs and road kill, which caused over 4,000 deaths of koalas.(K.S)

CRITICAL INFORMATION

  • Organizations such as www.savethekoala.com and the Australian Koala Foundation (AKF) make donations, and memberships available, as wells as giving people opportunities to become a foster parent for a koala. (K.S)
