Koalas are rapidly becoming extinct in their most fertile native habitat on the Koala Coast of South East Queensland and Northern NSW. People are often shocked to learn that the koala is in danger. We hope this little corner of reddit can highlight this serious issue facing Australia's most recognisable national icon and the natural heritage in which it thrives.

A koala in my own front yard!

This gorgeous fella was just hanging out really low in a gum tree in the front yard so I had to get a photo. I can’t even remember the last time I saw a wild koala so I was super excited. They’re amazing creatures.
