A sick koala named Wally, rescued by the animal rescue agency Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service (WIRES) on the outskirts of Sydney, is treated as part of a rehabilitation process at Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Sydney, Australia. The pervasive infection of chlamydia, blazing bushfires, drought, logging of forests and urban encroachment of koala habitat are some of the many destructive forces that continue to threaten their survival. These forces, a government report warned in June, could make Australia's symbolic animal extinct in New South Wales - the nation's most populous state - by 2050.

Former President Barack Obama waves while wearing a "Vote" mask as he campaigns on behalf of Democratic presidential nominee and his former Vice President Joe Biden in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, October 21, 2020.
