Ballarat Wildlife Park will be highlighting the plight of the Tree Kangaroo this week-end, 26-27 May, as part of Tree Roo Awareness Week, which is pioneered by Dr Karen Coombes, Director of the Tree Roo Rescue and Conservation Centre in the Atherton Tablelands, Far North Queensland. The Conservation Centre is focused on helping the Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo, one of Australia’s native species of Tree Kangaroo.
The Park’s aim for the week-end is to highlight the plight of the Tree Kangaroo with its ambassador species, the Goodfellows Tree Kangaroo, of which the Park has two. There are less than 50 Goodfellows Tree Kangaroos in legal collections around the world and Ballarat Wildlife Park is proud to part of this globally managed breeding program.
Come down and hear about the conservation and preservation work that Ballarat Wildlife Park and other Zoos and centres are doing for this unique animal.
