Australia’s koala population has shrunk by nearly half in three years

Currently, Australia is estimated to have fewer than 58,000 koalas. In 2018 there were more than 80,000. Especially in New South Wales, where many forests have been lost to fires and koalas have died, there are now less than three years. This is where the decline is greatest, at 41 percent.

The AFK president describes the figures as “dramatic” and believes that koalas should be protected by law. Nothing would indicate that there are growing populations. It is estimated that more than 5,000 koalas lived in a single location included in the study. In other places, sometimes there were only five or ten. There are also regions where animals are no longer found at all.

Koalas live in eastern Australia, especially in eucalyptus forests. Because their living environment changes, not only due to human actions but also, for example, forest fires, the animal species is getting more and more into trouble. The Australian government is working on a recovery plan, which will change the koala’s status from vulnerable to endangered. The concept was unveiled in June to residents of the states of New South Wales, Queensland and the area around the capital Canberra.
