The poor Koalas are facing threats against climate change and deforestation.. I wonder what other animals in Australia are facing this problem? Kangaroos and other outback animals?

Remember that book they called "The Silent Spring"? We seem to be counting down on species in recent history.It is time to really get serious about holding onto these amazing creatures and plants. We might even stay on the planet too if we make those changes now.
