The threats affecting Koalas are as follows:
Habitat Loss: Deforestation, fragmentation of territories, human invasion of habitats
Diseases: KoRV (Koala Retrovirus), Chlamydia, hip dysplasia, metabolic bone disease
Climate change: Drought, forest fires
Education, research and conservation efforts, are here united in one integral program aimed at the survival and sustainability of koala populations, both in zoos and in its natural habitats. The objective is to improve these two elements in the long run.
