Koala Sign - Slow Down!
Cars are the other great threat to the endangered koala, especially in built-up areas. The outskirts of Sydney and other Australian cities see increasing koala road fatalities. As always, speed kills. Koala signs are erected to make motorists aware of their presence and of the need to slow down. Sadly the research shows that the signs have very little effect on motorists' speed.
There has been some action on providing endangered koala tunnels under main roads in parts of Australia. But it's a local or volunteer-driven initiative rather than a government policy. For the most part, the koala is left to fend for itself on Australian roads
