Poo to the rescue: How fecal transplants can save starving koalas
WASHINGTON --- Scientists in Australia have discovered how to save starving koalas whose fussy eating habits make them vulnerable to habitat loss: by feeding them poo.

Their work was described in a study published in the journal Animal Microbiome on Tuesday. Michaela Blyton of the University of Queensland's School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, the paper's lead author, said she was inspired to act after a devastating drop in the population of koalas in Cape Otway in Victoria.
