Dispossessed is a cry for help.
While millions of koalas used to roam in the wild, their populations have plummeted with as few as 43,000 still remaining. These iconic animals have suffered devastating population decline due to human development. Thousands of trees are bulldozed each day across Australia, and our koalas are very quickly heading towards extinction. With critical koala populations still recovering from last summer's devastating fires, they urgently need help. Six thousand koalas were killed in NSW alone during last summer's fires. On a slippery slope even before this, they urgently need help.
