Rate this:
In this fascinating story of the koala, the ecology, behavior, and history of this extraordinary animal are explored, as well as ongoing threats to its existence, such as disease and habitat loss, and the controversial debate about how to best manage the populations of Australia's favorite marsupial. Tracing its origins from a peaceful relationship with Aborigines to Europeans valuing only its fur to its rightful place an Australian icon, this investigation shows the resilient and adaptive nature of the koala--described by many as a triumph of evolution. Today its homeland is compromised, and the creature is endangered, and this remarkable recollection of its life stands as a testament to its necessary survival.
