THERE'S a crisis in our backyard that could see one of Australia's most famous creatures wiped from existence.

A recent report by RSPCA and WWF-Australia, highlights the worsening impact of tree-clearing across the east coast of the country that is putting koala populations under pressure.

It has been found that in Queensland, koalas have declined by 53% over the past and future three koala generations while in News South Wales, koalas have declined by 26%.

The koala is listed as "vulnerable" under the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act in 2012 with the Australian Koala Foundation estimating that there's less than 80,000 Koalas remaining in Australia today.
