1 Save the Koalas You are the most sought after native Australian environmentalist in the country, and are currently based in the middle of Australia - The Great Sandy Desert - studying the habitat of the bilby. Your new assignment arrives... But first you have to find them! With populations dwindling at a rate of more than 50%, there’s no time to waste! With this in mind, the WWF have provided you with a plane to be on your way faster.

2 From the middle of Australia and with a plane at your disposal... Which way will you choose? E A S T W E S T

3 You have crossed the Queensland border E A S T W E S T

4 You have crossed the Northern Territory border E A S T W E S T

5 N.T. – No koala populations present. Back to the desert!

6 You have crossed the NSW border E A S T W E S T

7 You have crossed the Victorian border E A S T W E S T

8 Victoria - Populations are almost extinct. Despite being re-introduced, populations are now isolated and genetically weak. E A S T W E S T

9 N.S.W. – Some populations of koalas. You have hit the jackpot! Where are the populations of koalas the greatest? Best we continue by 4WD from here! E A S T W E S T

10 You have crossed the South Australian border E A S T W E S T

11 Koalas became extinct in SA following the fur trade of the early 20 th century. Despite being re- introduced – populations are weak and inbred and therefore not capable of long-term sustainability. Keep searching! E A S T W E S T

12 W.A. - Koalas haven’t been present for over 10,000 years! Back to the desert!

13 Queensland – Isolated populations. You must be getting close! Best continue by 4WD from here. E A S T W E S T

14 Queensland East Coast – Isolated populations. You’re getting close! E A S T W E S T

15 Along the eastern coast of Australia, koalas are most prevalent on the central and north coast of NSW and the south-east corner of QLD. WELL DONE!! Unfortunately, these areas have rapidly expanding urban centres which threaten habitats. Stay tuned for the next instalment!

16 Far Northern Queensland – You’ve come too far north! No koalas present Back to the desert!

17 Start listening in Geography class! You have driven straight into the ocean! Back to the desert!
