    12 Reasons Koalas Need To Stick Around

    With an official status of "vulnerable," koalas are on the threatened species list, but not yet endangered. Their numbers have been declining for a number of years, with the Brisbane Times reporting that the trend is slowing. Here's why koala conservation is important.

    1. They're curious wee things.

    2. The babies have to grow into their cute (and fluff), but they're still just as cuddly.

    3. They’re all about family.

    4. Resourceful is their middle name.

    5. They can be a little bit sassy.

    6. Sometimes they just want a hug, like the rest of us, but they also care about nature.

    7. They’re never afraid to accept a helping hand.

    8. They too are affected by bushfires and just want somewhere to live.

    Give them water, if you can.

    9. They’re just so goddamn fluffy, cute and lovable.

    10. And a bit weird.

    11. They even know the meaning of relax.

    12. And even though they aren’t really a bear, we love them anyway and would do anything to help them along in life.
