Confused Koala

Koala and baby on back.I was completely taken aback by what happened to a koala -not he one shown in the picture- who came wandering back home only to find it had been destroyed. There he remained still for over an hour, confused, not knowing where to go. The full story is available here:

What happened to this koala is that his habitat had been destroyed following a plan that had been approved by the authorities. This constant destruction of their natural habitats, the conflicts with human beings -we go on trowing them out of their homes in order to develop spaces for ourselves….- is causing so many animals to become vulnerable or in danger of extinction. Some very iconic and even admired species like the tiger or African lion are  endagered nowadays.
