What to expect

18 to 20 hours a day - that’s how long a koala sleeps. Find out why from our expert Keepers, as you watch our cuddly marsupials resting in the exhibit’s eucalyptus trees. You’ll learn fascinating facts such as why they’re such picky eaters, and just what plastic straws and bags have to do with saving their habitat.
