Koalas will be extinct by 2050 in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW), unless the destruction of their habitat reduces, according to a research released on Friday.

The study by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Australia and the Nature Conservation Council (NCC), used satellite images to assess the reduction of habitat through land clearing and the effect that has on vulnerable and endangered species.

"We see koala habitat disappearing at an alarming rate," the study author, conservation biologist Martin Taylor said.

"If you project that forward, it could be mid-century by the time we may have no more wild koalas in NSW."

Recent changes to land clearing laws prompted the study, with evidence showing that from 2016-17 to 2017-18, the rate of land that was either fully or partly cleared tripled from 2,845 hectares to 8,194 hectares.

However, the NSW government has refuted the claims in a statement, accusing the WWF and NCC of "playing politics and scaremongering."

Officials also pointed to a 32-million-US-dollar strategy they put in place to secure populations of koalas in the wild. (CGTN)

The Aborigines ate all the megafauna. If the white fullas had not come here 200 years ago the aborigines would have eaten all of the koalas by now. A koala is just bushtucker to an aboriginal. They even eat echidnas you know.

Anyway - I say good riddance. Koalas are lazier than pandas. And what has a koala ever done for anyone anyway? Koalas are also rapists.

Brain size

Koalas have one of the smallest brain to body ratios of any mammal. Additionally their brains are smooth, and not folded like in most animals. A brain is folded to increase the surface area for neurons, which means a koala can hardly solve a problem if it encounters one. If you present a koala with leaves plucked from a branch, laid on a flat surface, the koala will not recognize it as food. They are too dumb to adapt their feeding behavior to cope with change. In a room full of potential food, they can literally starve to death because their brain won’t see it. This is not the token of an animal that is winning at life.

They only eat eucalyptus

Speaking of stupidity and food, one of the likely reasons for their primitive brains is the fact that additionally to being poisonous, eucalyptus leaves (the only thing they eat) have almost no nutritional value. They can't afford the extra energy to think, they sleep more than 80% of their lives. When they are awake all they do is eat, shit and occasionally scream like Satan.

Because eucalyptus leaves hold such little nutritional value, koalas have to ferment the leaves in their guts for days. Unlike their brains, they have the largest hind gut to body ratio of any mammal.

They have dental problems

Many herbivorous mammals have adaptations to cope with harsh plant life taking its toll on their teeth, rodents for instance have teeth that never stop growing, some animals only have teeth on their lower jaw, grinding plant matter on bony plates in the tops of their mouths, others have enlarged molars that distribute the wear and break down plant matter more efficiently...

Koalas are no exception, when their teeth erode down to nothing, they resolve the situation … by starving to death.

They have to eat shit to survive

Being mammals, koalas raise their babies on milk (admittedly, one of the lowest milk yields to body ratio...)

However, when the young koala needs to transition from rich, nourishing substances like milk, to eucalyptus (a plant that seems to be making it abundantly clear that it doesn't want to be eaten), it finds it does not have the necessary gut flora to digest the leaves. To remedy this, the young joey begins nuzzling its mother's anus until she leaks a little diarrhea (actually fecal pap, slightly less digested), which he then proceeds to slurp on.

This partially digested plant matter gives him just what he needs to start developing his digestive system. Of course, he may not even have needed to bother nuzzling his mother. She may have been suffering from incontinence. Why?

They all carry STI’s

Because koalas are riddled with chlamydia. In some areas the infection rate is 80% or higher. This statistic isn't helped by the fact that one of the few other activities koalas will spend their precious energy on is rape.

Despite being seasonal breeders, males seem to either not know or care, and will simply overpower a female regardless of whether she is ovulating. If she fights back, he may drag them both out of the tree, which brings us full circle back to the brain

Koalas have a higher than average quantity of cerebrospinal fluid in their brains. This is to protect their brains from injury... should they fall from a tree.

So koalas are stupid, leaky, STI riddled sex offenders. But hey, they look cute :)

See. Koalas are stupid lazy rapists. And they all have chlamydia.

Now be nice ! Do not blame the STD on the Koala. Blame it on the sheep raper instead !
Round Up is good for developing the mind

Terrible

Australia has the highest rates of deforestation in the world. The Tasmanian Devil is also on the brink of extinction.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
