Koala Population
The koala is native to Australia however it is listed as an endangered species in recent years. The koala population in SE Queensland has been declining in a shocking rate. Koalas typically inhabit open Eucalyptus woodlands. Due to land clearing for urban development projects the koala has lost their habitats. Therefore conservation efforts must be carried out to save the koala and preserve the species. 

The model shows the koala population and the factors affecting it. From this model we can see the effects of various activities carried out towards the species population. The statistics are based on Report on Koala Coast koala surveys 2005-2006.
