Koalas are an Australian icon and they are being ruthlessly killed and maimed by plantation loggers and others with no intervention from government at any level. View: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/content/2013/s3808542.htm

I am writing to you in reference to the 7.30 program highlighting the maiming and killing of koalas in the plantations around Australia, but particularly Victoria. Koalas are an icon of Australia and governments on both side have ostensibly ignored their destruction in favour of the almighty dollar.
I ask you to immediately list the koala under the EPBC Act and to ensure that legislation is enacted to protect this iconic species and its habitat.
