This is Sid the Koala, photographed at Wild Life Sydney Zoo (A Partner of Science for Wildlife).
The size and status of koala populations differ significantly across Australia.
Koalas in some regions face increasing threats from urban expansion, disease, habitat loss, vehicle strike, and predation by dogs, and from their susceptibility to drought and climate change.
Blue Montains Koala Project:
Science for Wildlife is working to find koala populations in order to help conserve them. Once the populations are found and mapped and the threats to koalas identified, the information is shared with land managers, rural fire services and community groups to protect koalas and restore koala habitats.

Bushfire Emergency Funding
Thanks to the mapping of the Koalas in the Blue mountains, 12 were rescued ahead of the fires and are now temporary residing at Taronga Zoo.
We will be donating 25% of sales to Science for Wildlife as they also need to plan for the release of the koalas when it is safe, and they will continue to work with WIRES and NPWS to rescue koalas from burnt areas.
They also need to keep mapping these critically important koala populations.
