The Wider Image: From disease to bushfires, Australia's iconic koalas face bleak future
The country's worst summer of bushfires in a generation razed more than 11.2 million hectares (27.7 million acres), nearly half the area of the United Kingdom, thrusting the grey, tree-hugging marsupials into the centre of the national conversation and a hot political issue. In New South Wales, at least 5,000 koalas were killed in the fires that burned 80% of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and 24% of koala habitat on public land, the government's June report said. As another summer looms, koalas face the threat of more bushfires, although weather forecasters expect a wetter, cooler few months than in the previous year.

WEDDERBURN, Australia
The Wider Image: From disease to bushfires, Australia's iconic koalas face bleak future
Tracey, who volunteers for the animal rescue agency, Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service, also knows as WIRES, cares for twin koala joeys, who have been diagnosed as being underweight, and their mother named Gladys, who were rescued from an area where urban development is encroaching on koala habitat, at a rehabilitation enclosure next to her home, in Wedderburn, Australia, September 11, 2020. Koala conservationists are focusing more than ever on the city as population growth in metropolises like Sydney - home to a fifth of Australia's 25 million population - drives demand to clear forests and make way for homes. Traffic safety signs normally associated with tight corners and speed bumps now show the risk of koalas crossing the road in developed suburbs. "We do need housing to live in but there needs to be a balance and there needs to be a balance to ensure that these species survive," said Tracey.
