Storyline


Australian Minister of Environment Sussan Ley has warned that koalas could be listed as an endangered species as a result of the massive and ravaging bushfires.

Ley and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg on Monday announced 50 million Australian dollars (34.5 million US dollars) in funding to support species affected by the bushfire crisis.

Ley said the koala populations have suffered an "extraordinary hit" from the fires, declaring that the iconic species could be officially listed as "endangered."

Koalas have been considered "vulnerable" since 2012 but Ley said that the Threatened Species Scientific Committee, which manages the status of all species in Australia, could soon downgrade it.

Experts fear that half of the 50,000 koalas that live on Kangaroo Island in South Australia have perished in fires that have devastated the island.

Ley vows to do everything she can to rescue and recover the arboreal herbivorous marsupial habitat, including innovative approaches that look at whether koalas could be relocated to an area that they are not indigenous to.

Half of the additional funding will go directly to zoos, wildlife carers and hospitals while the rest will be managed by Sally Box, the Threatened Species Commissioner, who will co-chair a committee with Ley on long-term recovery efforts.
