Is the Koala Population Growing?

It isn’t looking good for our little friends right now. Due to Koala’s being hunted for their fur, diseases such as chlamydia, and one the main factors deforestation our little friends are running out. The last report suggests that there are around 80,000 left out of the million there was before they started being hunted and having their homes taken from them.  In southern Australia Koala’s were actually hunted to extinction except in Victoria where they were almost extinct from being poached.  The koalas from other south-eastern parts of Australia have been moved to Victoria and the southern area to repopulate.
