Great news for the cuddly koala, they could be about to become chlamydia free.

Microbiologists at the University of Technology Sydney have accidentally come across an advancement, while developing new antibiotics for humans.

The team found a particle that can tackle chlamydia.

Koalas suffer from a different strain of chlamydia, which can result in something called dirty tail. It is terribly painful and often results in death.

Populations have dropped by 40% in Queensland and 33% in New South Wales in the last 20 years and the species made it on to the endangered list back in 2012.

Finger crossed this medicine gets distributed to koalas.
