Australian Koala

Recently, the Australian government is considering listing the ‘koala’ found on the east coast of its country as an endangered species.

Key Points

  • There has been a significant reduction in the number of east coast koalas in Australia for some time now. In addition, this organism is currently facing various challenges.
  • Currently, the east coast of Australia is affected by urban encroachment, indiscriminate development, which has significantly reduced the number of koalas here.
  • It should be noted that in the years 2019 and 2020, there was a fierce fire incident in the forests of ‘New Southwales’ and ‘Queensland’ states, which was called Bush Fire. Due to this, about 30% of the koala population died here.
  • The ‘koala’ is a rare species of tree-dwelling animals in the forests of Australia. It belongs to the genus ‘Phascolarctidae’, and is the last rare animal of this species in the world.
  • It is generally found in the coastal areas of eastern and southern Australia.
  • A large number of koalas have been killed by wildfires in Australia, and 30 percent of their habitat has been completely destroyed.

Australia’s bushfire

  • In the year 2020 in the forests of Australia, there was a fierce fire in the summer season, which is called bushfires.
  • The intensity of this fire was so high that the Prime Minister of Australia called the then summer season as ‘Black Summer’.
  • Many people and innumerable number of wildlife were killed in this fierce fire in the Australian forests. This fire had a serious impact on the ‘koala’ species, similar to the bear.
