The Koala Bear is on the IUNCR red list of endangered species (Status: Least Concern ).

Why is the koala endangered? (source
Koalas live only in eucalyptus forests and are completely dependent on these forests for their survival, both as a habitat and as their primary food supply. Human activities such as farming, logging, and urban development endanger the koala by destroying eucalyptus forests.
