Koala

Do you like Koalas? Because I do. Koalas are native to Australia so it is not an introduced species. Koalas are an endangered species in Australia. Many Koalas are killed every year because of humans. Humans drive their car and they don't realise a little innocent Koala is passing and it ends up getting ran over and killed or left in a critical state, another example is that you go bush walking with your dog and you don't have your dog on a lead and they see something and it's a Koala and then the dog attacks the koala and ends up killing the Koala or injuring it. Now for some
