Stopping koala extinction is agonising simple. But here’s why I’m not optimistic – The Conversation

No other animal captures Australian’s essence across the world than the Koala. Can you imagine an Australia without Koalas? Well at this rate its likely only 30 years away – within our lifetime unless 42 recommendations for change are acted upon. Whether there’s is an appetite to do something meaningful with land clearing where there is existing koala habitats remains to be seen. Will conservationists or developers and industry win? Better go out and see this functionally extinct race before its too late and we witness its pitiful demise.
