This week, the Australian Government listed several koala populations as “vulnerable”, giving them special protection. As a koala researcher and conservation planner, I am most impressed with Minister Burke’s decision.
The cute Koala is a our national animal. We all love Koalas but really how often do you actually see one in the wild? I have to admit the last time I saw a Koala in the wild was in 2005 at Apollo Bay, Victoria! wow, that was a long time ago!
