AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE

Koalas

The Koala is uniquely Australian but is only found in isolated pockets of certain kinds of eucalypt forest in Eastern Australia.

Its diet consists of the leaves of just a few species of gum trees (eucalypts).

Koalas are usually to be seen sleeping in the forks of branches high in the trees as their food does not give them lots of energy and they spend about 80% pf their life sleeping.

Although they are one of Australia's best known and most popular animals their existance is threatened by land clearing and the growth of urban areas
