Fun Facts

Fun Facts

  • Though sometimes called “koala bears”, koalas are marsupials, not bears. They have a pouch to carry their baby which is very undeveloped at birth. The newborn crawls quickly into the pouch and stays there for around half a year.

  • When male koalas mature, there is a brown gland on their chest for producing scent. They rub the gland on tree trunks to mark their territory.

Threats & Conservation

IUCN Red List: Vulnerable
IUCN Red List: Vulnerable

Koalas are threatened by habitat loss and degradation. Deforestation is caused by land clearance for farming and human settlement. Climate change may bring more severe droughts. The loss of trees increases competition among koalas for food and territory. Koalas are also more prone to disturbance from humans, collisions with vehicles, as well as predation by dogs and foxes.
