Koala Koala

Everyone loves koalas. These cuddly-looking animals are so appealing that they have become a symbol of their native Australia. But today koalas are an endangered species. Once hunted for their fur and now deprived of their food supply as forests are cut down for development, koalas are being raised in special parks where they can live in safety.

This lively photo essay follows the day-to-day life of Karen, a Queensland koala, from her birth at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane, Australia, to her new home at the San Francisco Zoo.

Researched and photographed on location, Koala is filled with forty adorable full-color photographs of these captivating marsupials playing, feeding, resting, and climbing, both in captivity and in the wild. It offers young readers a fascinating look at one of the world's most endearing animals.
