Introduce Koala Bears to New Zealand Eucalyptus Plantations

Koalas are functionally extinct in Australia, and could thrive in New Zealand, as many other Australasian species do.  They would not compromise our local eco-system, as koalas typically inhabit open eucalypt woodlands, and the leaves of these trees make up most of their diet. 

New Zealand has 28575 hectares planted in eucalypts, most is located in the Central North Island, and are similar to much older forests from Australia, as they grow fast here.  

If we don't act now, the extinction of the koala will be the fault of not just Ozzies but also all us Kiwis letting our grandparents build houses in Port McQuarie.

Come on ANZACs; if we introduce this unique animal in a controlled way, we can pavalova the worlds most beguiling marsupial.
