The Australian state of New South Wales is to spend £25 million protecting one of its most iconic creatures - the koala.
The money will be used to create forest reserves and build a hospital to care for the sick and injured animals.
Habitat loss, dog attacks, car accidents, climate change and disease have all been blamed for the decline in koala populations.
Almost 62,000 acres of state forest will become a koala habitat, for the animals to breed freely.
Before the arrival of Europeans to the continent in the 18th Century, there's thought to have been 10 million koalas in Australia.
That figure is now down to around 43,000 koalas left in the wild, according to the Australian Koala Foundation.
