The trial vaccine run is being facilitated by the University of Sunshine Coast.

So far, the vaccine has been tested in 250 koalas in eight smaller trial runs and has proven to be safe and can reduce infection levels, said Peter Timms, a microbiology professor at the university, as reported by The Guardian.

According to the Australian Koala Foundation, Australia has lost about 30% of its koala population in the past three years thanks to droughts, habitat loss and bushfires. There are currently an estimated 58,000 koalas left on the continent.

STATUE ENSURES HARAMBE THE GORILLA LIVES ON

The legacy of Harambe the gorilla lives on … near the Charging Bull statue on Wall Street in New York City.

Last Monday, a seven-foot-tall statue of the gorilla — who became immortalized as a meme in 2016 — was erected in Bowling Green Park by the founders of Sapien.Network, an upcoming social networking platform, UPI reported.

Alongside the Harambe were also 10,000 bananas.

According to Sapien.Network, the Harambe statue is meant to show that Wall Street has gone bananas in the expansion of the disparity of wealth between the top 1% of the population and the rest of the United States.

For those who aren’t in the know, Harambe was shot to death in 2016 after he picked up a three-year-old boy who wandered into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo. The animal’s death resulted in a debate about keeping primates in captivity and spawned the now-viral meme.
