Age ratingU - Sutiable for all
Added onOctober 04, 2016
A Koala documentary presented by Shane Jacobson. The Koala is a one of the most famous animals in the world and is native to Australia living for the most part on the South Eastern coast near to New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. It’s a really easily recognisable animal with a large head, stout nose, fluffy ears and silver/ chocolate fur. Koalas mostly inhabit Eucalypt woodland areas and have a diet mainly consisting of leaves which have a limited nutritional value so therefore on average Koalas sleep for around 20 hours a day.
In this Koala documentary we step into the world of the symbol of Australia in its natural habitat. During the 20th century this animal was hunted heavily and is now listed as “Vulnerable” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature; The Australian government has protected specific environments to ensure their future survival, some of which we see in this film.
