Just outside of Apollo Bay, along Victoria's Great Ocean Road is a place where Koalas have been living for years. Due to vast habitat loss caused by the development of Koala habitat, large populations of Koalas are being forced into smaller and smaller areas. Unfortunately this means that the eucalyptus trees in the area have been nearly stripped of their leaves. However, there are still many Koalas in the area, and it is an amazing sight to find them in the wild feeding and dreaming. On this particular day it had been raining, so all of the wet Koalas were curled up in the afternoon sun.
