Australia, home of the koalas. Recently, there have been lots of bush fires happening there. Koalas are in danger, more than before. They have been hurt and harmed by the fires happening in their home. These fires have been going on since October. Koalas are now added to the list of animals almost going extinct. Firefighters and local people have been saving some of these koalas from the fires. These animals are a national symbol of Australia. These koalas are not extinct, but they will be if people aren’t careful enough. One of the koalas injuries were so severe, it had to be put to sleep. It is said there are no more than 80,000 koalas left in the country.
