Conservationists in Australia are using the latest technology to protect the vulnerable species.


Infrared drones are now being used to help track koalas in the wild in Australia. Conservationists are hoping this might hold the key to saving the koala population in New South Wales.

The increasing numbers of bushfires across the country has sped up the decline in numbers.
