Koala eviction victims and Gold Coast habitat destruction

April 23, 2014

The prognosis for koalas and other Gold Coast habitat casualties from Mic Smith on Vimeo.

Koala admissions to one of the main wildlife hospitals in South East Queensland have gone up from about 30 a year to 300 a year in only five years.

Currumbin Wildlife Hospital vet Michael Pyne says the koalas that come in to the hospital are either sick or injured but either way habitat destruction plays a big part in their problems.

The way things are going your Grandkids might not ever see a koala in the wild. Koala admissions at the Gold Coast’s wildlife hospital have risen 1000 percent in five years. It seems developers are very fond of their habitat.
