Endangered Species: Bridled Nail-tailed Wallaby of Australia was thought to be extinct until 1973 when a small population was found. Conservation efforts were put into place, but the species is still endangered. There are only about 500 in the world.
Tree-Kangaroos are macropods (Marsupials including kangaroos and wallabees) found in New Guinea, Queensland and nearby islands who have adapted to spending most of their lives in trees with stronger forelimbs and longer tails than their earth bound relatives and are able to leap 30m from one tree to another and climb by sliding their forearms while being propelled upwards by their hind legs. They are slow and clumsy on the ground. They weigh up to 30lbs…
The Tree Kangaroo is an amazing creature that can leap down from a height of 10 meters with ease and spring into trees, using its strong legs and its tail, as a rudder. It is also pretty damn cute, but, unfortunately, that doesnt stop man from destroying its habitat and putting it on the endangered animals list. Help stop the destroying of their homes!!!
