Save the koala

We all know this cuddly bear with its round, furry ears and big nose. They look so cute carrying around their cub in the pouch or on its back. Sadly, the Koalas are an endangered species since most of its habitat is being cleared out.

On September 29, it’s Save the Koala Day where awareness about these furry little creatures is raised so that we can help conserve the Koalas and their homes.

The habitat that Koalas need to survive is increasingly being cleared, and 80 per cent of the Koala’s natural habitat has already been destroyed which have resulted in the extinction of local Koala populations. Only less than 80,000 Koalas are remaining, possibly as few as 43,000. If this rate of decline continues then the Koala is at risk of extinction.

So to spread some love and awareness about these cute, furry animals; Here’s five facts we bet you didn’t know about the koala:
