The koala is one of Australia's most loved and iconic animals, but they need your help.
The Federal Environment Minister has listed the koala as a threatened species in Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory under national environment law, and the koala is listed as a vulnerable species under State environmental legislation in Queensland. Across Queensland, koala numbers continue to decline as a result of habitat loss and increasing threats such as dog attacks, road fatalities and disease.
