Learn about the Koala diet and habitat from the Australian Koala Foundation in Wholly Natural Issue #8 and share it with your kids. Some people think that koalas sleep a lot because they get drunk on the eucalyptus oil in gum leaves. That's not true! Koalas sleep or rest for up to 21 hours each day because their bodies need a lot of energy to digest the tough fibrous gum leaves, and when they are sleeping they save energy. Read more fascinating facts about Australia’s loveable Koalas and what’s being done to protect them and their habitat. We at Wholly Natural love our beautiful adopted boy Coen and will bring you updates on his wellbeing through our website and the magazine.
