Even winter will come to an end

I imagine koalas can run from a fire very fast. However, the numbers don’t make sense. They estimate 1000 koalas died and then say that there is a population in NSW of 18000. That would still leave 17000. Do koalas only live in NSW? No question that the fires destroying the habitat have an impact, but it sounds a bit sensational to me speaking about extinction of the koala. At least at this point. Of couse koalas are at risk of extinction the same way as all other species, including us.
