Quite possibly one of the cutest animals in existence, the Australian koala is facing serious health dangers. An epidemic of chlamydia has begun to ravage Australia's koala population. In koalas, chlamydia is a nasty bacterial disease with symptoms including blindness, respiratory infections, and even infertility.

Combined with other threats from habitat loss and dog attacks, koalas now face the possibility of extinction. Though chlamydia doesn't directly kill the animals, rendering them infertile means koalas could become extinct in as little as a few decades.

About 40% of Australian female koalas are now infertile. We must intervene if we are to reverse the pattern that could lead these cuddly creatures to extinction.

Sign the petition asking Australia's Federal Environment Minister to elevate koalas to endangered status and ensure they receive the resources necessary to avert this catastrophe.

Thank you for the post and petition. I just wanted to mention that the petition is connected to a site that provides free clicks to provide a homeless veteran with a meal, plant a tree in the rainforest, or protect a portion of the rainforest, and provide food for the hungry. It enables one to have another opportunity to make the world a better place and save the planet. (s, n, p, t)
