Calls to declare Koalas endangered after thousands died in bushfires

Calls to declare Koalas endangered after thousands died in bushfires

After reports estimate that at least 5,000 koalas died in the recent fires in New South Wales (12% of the population in the state), conservation groups are asking the government to declare koalas endangered. The New South Wales government is reportedly convening an independent panel to assess the effect the bushfires had on koalas.

I'm pretty sure you can't properly survey let alone conserve for the numbers of koalas while the fire is still ongoing.

why do we worry so much over suicidal species? these guys have to eat half a day of nothing but poisonous leaves and then sleep the other half to digest them. Why are we so adamant on stopping natural selection?

12% of the population in NSW equates to more like 1% or less of the total population. seems like attempt at publicity.
