Although often called koala bears because of their resemblance to cuddly teddy bears, koalas are marsupials, not bears. Koalas are native to Australia and related to kangaroos and wombats. Learn more at these adorable koala sites.

Koala Tracker

“Australia’s national koala mapping project, KoalaTracker, is crowdsourcing the location, points of impact and causes of death and injury for the public record – bringing science, policymakers and community together to take effective action to save the koala.” For those of us not able to track koalas in the wild, there is an interesting FAQ page (What do koalas eat?) and a gallery of photos taken by volunteers.

National Geographic Kids: Koala

“A koala mother usually gives birth to one joey at a time. A newborn koala is only the size of a jelly bean. Called a joey, the baby is blind, naked, and earless. As soon as it’s born, this tiny creature makes its way from the birth canal to its mother’s pouch. Using the two well-developed senses it’s born with – smell and touch – along with its strong front legs and claws and an instinct that tells it which direction to head, the baby koala reaches the pouch.” With quick facts and a map of the koala’s range, this single-page National Geographic site is a short but sweet introduction to the koala.
