‘Problem around most Koala populations’: Koala vaccine developed #Problem #Koala #populations #Koala #vaccine #developed #englishheadline


Microbiologist Professor Peter Timms says Chlamydia is a “problem around most Koala populations” after a new vaccine has been developed to treat Koalas.

“We’ve been working on this vaccine for a while now and it’s been a research vaccine up until this stage, that’s why it’s pretty important now to take this from a research stage into a production stage,” Professor Timms told Englishheadline Australia.

“It’s a problem around most of the Koala populations … it is affecting around 80 to 90 per cent of the population,” he said.

“Only 24 per cent of the ones that come in can be treated and released – so three-quarters of them don’t make it out.”
