Even amid the pandemic, this newly funded travel startup is tackling the stodgy timeshare market

The world is rife with me-too startups, which makes it all the more refreshing when a founder comes along that manages to find a broken market that’s hiding in plain sight. That’s what Mike Kennedy appears to be doing with Koala, a young outfit determined to update the stodgy world of property time-share management, wherein people acquire points or otherwise pay for a unit at a timeshare resort that they intend to regularly use or swap or rent out (or all three). It’s a big and growing market. A...

Bear  the dog rescues koalas from Australian wildfires

    A ustralia’s devastating fires have been very hard on the koala population. They live in trees and depend on foliage, primarily eucalyptus leaves, for food. As the fires sweep through the country, many koalas have been harmed or displaced from their food source.   Bear, a 6-year-old Border Collie mix, was surrendered by his family.  No one could blame them though. Everything you would want in a dog, Bear is not. He is annoying, high-energy, doesn’t like to be touched and is completely unin...

Koala-sniffing detection dog, Bear, helps save koalas from Australian bushfires

Record-breaking bushfires are raging along the eastern and southeastern coast of Australia, burning through prime marsupial habitat and claiming the lives of hundreds of koalas, an already vulnerable species. Search-and-rescue teams are underway to locate surviving koalas, and they do so thanks to the efforts of koala detection dogs, like Bear, who has been trained by the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW). Human-caused climate change is to blame for the severe temperatures, vegetatio...

Koala epidemic provides lesson in how DNA protects itself from viruses

In animals, infections are fought by the immune system. Studies on an unusual virus infecting wild koalas, by a team of researchers from the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Queensland, reveal a new form of 'genome immunity.' The study appears Oct. 10 in the journal Cell.

Koalas declared "functionally extinct"

The Australian Koala Foundation declared koalas officially “functionally extinct,” a term which means that though there are still about 80,000 koalas, they are either unlikely to reproduce another generation, prone to inbreeding due to low numbers or may no longer play a significant role in their ecosystem. The iconic Australian animal is on a fast track to extinction and has suffered from deforestation, disease, climate change-driven drought and a massive slaughter for fur in the 19th and 20th...
