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.

3. They’re all about family.

4. Resourceful is their middle name.

5. They can be a little bit sassy.

The sass is strong in this one.

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.

Unnnn duuuuuuuh.

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

How can you deny that widdle face?

10. And a bit weird.

He just really likes blowing bubbles.

11. They even know the meaning of relax.

Maybe a little too much.

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