Endangered Animal, Native Animals

The Koala, Australia’s most recognised and probably best-loved native animal, thrived along the Northern Beaches up until the 1970s. 

These days it’s unlikely you will find koalas in the wild. Threats to Koala colonies are loss of habitat, attacks by dogs, chlamydia disease and road casualties.
