It is estimated that up to 80 per cent of the Kangaroo Island koalas and at least 30 per cent of populations in NSW died and many more were injured in the fires which swept across large areas of their habitats in eastern and southern Australia.

A University of Adelaide-led research project will work with Port Macquarie's Koala Hospital to study the clinical data of koalas injured in last summer's devastating bushfires.
