A LITTLE ABOUT KOALAS
Koalas are native to Australia and are considered symbols of innocence, magic, and dreams. They are loved by many because they are cuddly, cute, and smart animals. Do you know that an adult Koala can spend almost the entire day munching on 200 to 500 grams of eucalyptus leaves? That’s a lot!
We all admire them for their carefree, relaxing tree lifestyle but it’s important to remember that Koalas are more than just charm and adorableness. Due to the fire devastation in the Northern New South Wales region, Koalas are sliding to extinction, bit by bit. They are now considered vulnerable, just one step above the endangered status.
Today, Koalas are in serious decline and suffering from the consequences of bushfires and habitat destruction. Some of them also perish from road accidents and domestic dog attacks. We may not be from Australia, but it’s important to play a role in animal conservation. Saving Koalas, and any other animal in this world starts with every person. Small steps matter! You can start by buying Koala-themed souvenirs and items, and continue spreading the word about their current situation.
If you have a small child or sibling, you can work on Koala activity sheets together. Let the youngsters know how important conservation is, and the little ways they can do to help these creatures. Coloring can help both kids and grownups turn their heads to things that matter. Those electrifying colors on Koala coloring pages are pure magic.
