Guest: Romane Cristescu, Ecologist, Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Founding Member of Detection Dogs for Conservation, University of Sunshine Coast, Australia Millions of koalas used to live in Australia—now there are only tens of thousands. And then the devastating bushfires hit at the beginning of the year and killed an estimated 5,000. Today, koalas are struggling to adapt with much of their habitat destroyed.
