Straight from the camera :-)

Noosa Hinterland, Queensland.

It is quite unusual to see a real koala in the wild although friends of ours in Maleny have seen some in their gum trees. Sadly their numbers are dwindling.

TSC Things which go together... Koala and Australia

This is so cute. When we visited Australia, we actually saw a few wild ones. We saw far more in zoos and all of my good photos of koalas came from zoos because they were much closer to the camera and in better light.

There are a few in the Noosa National Park and we saw one at the very top of a gum tree down there once.

Great textures and bokeh plus that cute little toy makes for a great shot. Just such a shame that the number of real ones in the wild are in decline ... mankind has a lot to answer for!

Thanks Paul. TV report on Channel 9...

Ultrasound used as latest weapon to combat chlamydia in koala population.

New diagnosis tool for disease that causes blindness and infertility and affects up to 90% of koalas in some locations is quicker than conventional testing methods.
