After 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.
