About this product
- DescriptionAfter coexisting successfully with Aborigines for thousands of years, the koala was considered sloth-like by early Europeans and by the 20th century the species had been driven to near-extinction. Yet the koala is also one of the most well-adapted and resilient of Australia's marsupials. This is the fascinating story of the koala.
- Author BiographyDr Stephen Jackson has worked in the wildlife industry for the past two decades, as a field biologist, zoo keeper, wildlife park curator and government zoo regulator, among other roles.

Dr Jackson is the author of Biology of Australian Possums and Gliders and Australian Mammals: Biology and Captive Management, for which he received the Whitley Medal, and has published over 25 papers in various areas of Australian mammalogy. This is his third book.
