A sad day for koala-kind

Sam the Koala, who became a "symbol of hope" during the Victorian bushfires, has died. Many of you will have seen this picture

She was expected to undergo surgery today to treat cysts as a result of urogenital chlamydiosis, a life-threatening disease that affects 50 per cent of the koala population. Did you know that koalas get chlamydia? No, neither did I, which proves that you do learn something new everyday.
