Did you guys know that Koalas are endangered? I had an idea, but I didn’t know to what extent until I read an article in this month’s National Geographic magazine. Apparently there are very few Koalas left due to various factors including them being injured by cars in populated areas, and a loss of habitat due to humans cutting down eucalyptus trees.

All of this is very sad, but luckily there are many people in Australia that have taken action to protect the Koala population by creating rescues where they save Koalas and help nurse injured ones back to health. Here’s a photograph of a woman who is helping to save Koalas by adopting them. Wouldn’t you love to be in her place? Apparently it’s a lot of work, but it also must be an incredibly rewarding thing to do, and would be filled with adorable moments like these.

Mommy, can we go to the park and play on the jungle gym?
