Koalas are ’functionally extinct’ with only 80,000 remaining

Koalas have been declared ’functionally extinct’ as per the Australian Koala Foundation. The marsupial is down to just 80,000 wild species members, meaning there aren’t enough breeding adults left to support another generation. The Koalas have been ravaged by the effects of rising temperatures and heat waves, which have caused widespread deforestation.

"Fumctionally extimct" - another nonsense word creation. They are not extinct. Period.

Another article in today's news where the same foundation is proposing chemical contraception to control excess Koala population near Adelaide. I think more control of conservationists is desperately required. Overdue for the government to cease listening to and funding middle class do gooders. No good deed goes unpunished.
