Koalas Have Become ‘Functionally Extinct’ Warn Campaigners

Koalas Have Become ‘Functionally Extinct’ Warn Campaigners An animal campaign group has warned that koala numbers have fallen so low that the animal is “functionally extinct.” According to the Australian Koala Foundation (AKF), there are just 80,000 koalas left in the wild in Australia. Of the 128 regions where koalas are known to have been present, 41 of those no longer have any population of the marsupial. The term functionally extinct refers to a reduced population which may no longer be viable. The AKF said it has previously warned the current prime minister and opposition leaders of the fate of the koala but “received no response”.

A 35-year-old hiker who was missing for more than two weeks was found alive on Friday in a Hawaiian forest, the woman's mother confirmed to NBC News affiliate KHNL in Honolulu.

On Friday, a Facebook page dedicated to finding her posted an update stating, "Amanda has been found."

The post said she had been "stuck and slightly injured" while in the forest.

Search for missing Seamus Lawless will resume in two days

Search for missing Seamus Lawless will resume in two days The search for missing Irish man Seamus Lawless will resume in two days. The Trinity College professor went missing as he climbed Mount Everest. Seamus, 39, fell as he descended the peak on Thursday having just achieved a lifetime ambition of reaching the summit. 

Eller's parents, who had offered a cash reward for her safe return, said previously that they she believed she was hiking when she went missing. The forest has caves, ravines and trenches, and 60 searchers combed the area by land and air in the days after her disappearance.

On Friday, Julia Eller, told KHNL she didn't yet have details about her daughter's ordeal. "She had gone a long way," she said. "And that’s all I know."

The station reported that a helicopter pilot hired by Eller's family spotted her from the air.

Eller is a physical therapist and yoga instructor. Her condition was unknown. Her mother was en route to a hospital where the woman was being checked out.

A jewelry box led police to revisit hundreds of deaths. They may have found a serial killer.

A jewelry box led police to revisit hundreds of deaths. They may have found a serial killer. Police say that Billy Chemirmir smothered his victims with pillows before robbing them. Because they were elderly women who lived alone, their deaths were not considered suspicious and initially did not get investigated. “That was heart-wrenching to find out that she had not died peacefully,” Adair told WFAA. “It was heartbreaking.” Chemirmir has insisted he is innocent. “They have circumstantial evidence that puts him in the area but that’s as far as the evidence goes,” Phillip Hayes, his attorney, told the Associated Press last week.
