Koalas need endangered legislation NOW! 10 Adorable Reasons to Save Them

Koala Bears Need Endangered Legislation Now: 10 Adorable Reasons to Save Them (Video Slideshow) Photo: Rennett Stowe /Creative Commons Koala bears aren't officially considered endangered Australia -- state legislation lists the species as "threatened," "rare," or even "thriving" (in Victoria) -- but this marsupial is facing a bigger fight than ever before to sustain its populations. Sexually transmitted diseases, habit loss, human interaction, and climate change are all working against them.
