Tree Kangaroo

The Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo is native to the tropical forests of Papua New Guinea. Tree kangaroos are  highly threatened by hunting for food and are traded for cultural reasons by local people. Habitat loss through deforestation for timber, coffee, dryland rice and wheat plantations places further pressure on populations.

One of their favourite treats is hibiscus flowers!
