Calling all koala lovers!
The terrible bushfires have been catastrophic for the koalas.
Not only have thousands of koalas died or been severely injured, but key prime koala habitat has been destroyed, which means life is going to be very tough for those who survived. What will they eat? Where will they live?
It shows the importance of saving this vulnerable species before it’s toolate.
The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW for short) have a petition to urge the state of New South Wales to declare a koala emergency and enact special protections to save koalas.
Life had been hard enough for koalas before these fires. Their numbers had been devastated because of massive habitat destruction and prolonged drought.
Protect the habitat of koalas and we also help many other species in the same area who live there too.
A report commissioned by IFAW shows that:
The New South Wales Koalas are listed as Vulnerable at the moment.
