This article focuses on the Australian Koala bears who are in the list of endangered species. Approximately 80 percent of Australia's original koala habitat has been decimated to make way for housing projects. Koalas like to live anywhere they see an edible eucalyptus tree. Koalas can consume just a few of Australia's more than 600 varieties of eucalyptus trees. But construction projects that destroy these trees leave koalas with little to eat. INSET: VANISHING ANIMALS.
