Factors Affecting the Koala Mortality Incline
The Koala has suffered extensive habitat loss as the eucalyptus forests it depends on for survival are cut down to make room for houses, roads and agriculture. But the koala also faces a host of other problems as well. For instance, the Foundation says 4,000 koalas a year are killed by cars and dogs. Others fall victim to wildfires and diseases and many more. it is estimated that there has been a 50-90% decline of overall koala population(Maxwell et al. 1996)
