The plight of the Koala in the Darling Downs is an ongoing challenge for those doing their best to ensure these animals survival. This Koala was spotted in a very dry gum-tree at Geham on the 19th of November in a paddock. As you can see from the photo showing the full size of the tree with the Koala in it, it offers little shade and very little food due to its wilted leaves. Fingers crossed this one can make it.
