Transcript of The Koala

Factors for why they are going extinct
People are building more and more buildings and it is cracking down on the koalas homes
Chlamydia is the most common sickness of all and if they get it they will most likely die.
Stress from lack of food or habitat
Diseases
How it got its name
The koala got its name because when the first settlers came to Australia they discovered small bear like creatures so they started calling them koala (meaning "no water" in Katang) bears
Extinction
When the first settlers came to Australia they started a life of their own building and growing, but what they didn't know was they were harming these little animals we call Koalas. There is only 100,000 koalas left in the world. That is not good! It may seem like a big number but in reality by the end of this year I bet that number with have gone down 3 times in size! And these days suburban life is destroying their habitat along with chlamydia!
How to save them
Koalas are slowly becoming more and more extinct. But with the help of the ESA (extinction species association) we can help stop koala extinction
Thank you!
What food do they eat?
Food is very important to koalas their favorite food to eat is a Eucalyptus tree. Most animals cannot eat it because it is so toxic, but the koalas have adapted to eat these trees. They are so picky that they only eat Eucalyptus trees!
How much do they eat?
Koalas eat 200 to 500 grams of Eucalyptus trees each
DAY. Sometimes they will eat other Australian trees but it is very unlikely.

Where do they live?
Koalas live in Southeastern and Eastern Australia. Such as Queensland, South Wales, South Australia, and Victoria. It's kind of a coincidence that they live near so much water because they hate water and they typically don't drink it!
