With all the media attention surrounding Australia Zoo’s newly established John Oliver Koala Chlamydia Ward, we figured it’s the perfect time to make sure our readers are informed about the very real threat of the disease and the devastating effect it has on our native icon.
While we enjoy the summer holidays— returning to our air-conditioned abodes when it gets too much— our native animals, especially our koalas and birds, can find it difficult to cope with the sweltering heat and limited water sources. Here’s how you can help them out this summer.
Remote night-vision cameras and audio recordings have been used to identify two koalas in a Central Coast national park.
The koala was stranded after water levels quickly rose in the Murray River.
Habitat loss remains the biggest threat to koala populations.
Introducing daylight savings could save koalas in south-east Queensland, new research reveals.
Under a proposed new trial, private property owners could help protect Australia’s endangered species – and the idea has gained the support of entrepreneur and AG founder Dick Smith.
As the weather warms and wildlife is increasingly on the move, the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital is getting ready for its busiest time of year.
Koalas are under threat from a range of factors, from urban expansion to climate change. Unfortunately there is no quick fix, and it may be that not all populations can be saved.
