  • Description

    One of the Australia's best-known animals, the Koala, is in danger of extinction. Fauna experts say bushfires, disease and urbanisation are killing koalas faster than they can reproduce. Indigenous to Australia, the koala-once thought to be related to the bear because of its appearance-has been hard hit by diseases affecting the eyes and kidney. Bushfires have also taken a tragic toll; it's thought thousands of koalas have suffocated in tree tops. But in French Island, Victoria, natura has added another problem...over-population. The Australian Broadcasting Commission's Martyn Goddard reports.
