Koalas are endangered because they are beginning to live right by roadsides. As you can imagine, they are falling out of the trees and getting run over by vehicles.
Unfortunately, koalas mark their territory and stay there, even if the trees are grown in people’s back yards. Days are beginning to get busier and busier for rescuers, due to how many koalas are getting stuck in trees and getting knocked over.
HUMANS ARE TAKING OVER THEIR HABITATS!
In 1750, over ¾ of South Australia were possible Koala habitats, but now there is hardly any left in the wild, and experts think that there are only 80,000 left in the wild!
I got all my facts and quotes from the National Geographic Magazine and National Geographic Magazine Kids.
