Koalas are disappearing. Loss of koala habitat and koala food trees (eucalyptus leaves) is the leading koala threat to these beautiful and unique animals. Often called a koala bear, koalas are actually marsupials, and they need our help to survive.
The Australian Koala Foundation is working to protect endangered koalas and preserve their natural habitats through the introduction of the Koala Protection Act to provide real legislative protection for koalas. This simple piece of national legislation will focus on protecting eucalyptus trees and affording Koalas the highest level of protection of any animal species in Australian history.
