Help us save our Australian Tree kangaroos.
Protect our forests.
For now, and for the generations after us and you will protect all of the special animals in them.
We are a non-profit organisation that rescues and rehabilitates, orphaned, injured or displaced tree kangaroos for release back into the wild or for life in captivity as breeding animals for education and conservation in Zoos.
We also wish to educate the public and increase awareness of Australian tree kangaroo conservation and the threats that bring them into care such as dogs and cars.
Our Vision is to assist in the prevention of the extinction of Tree kangaroos.

Lumholtz tree Kangaroos are NOT nocturnal, they are cathemeral, active day and night
So please look out for them while driving at ALL times, especially near rainforest. To learn more, keep an eye out for our Education section (COMING SOON!).
Please Keep you dogs fenced in at all times as they WILL chase tree kangaroos and may harm them
it doesn't matter how well trained they are
“To entertain the idea that any kangaroo
known to us,
or approaching its formation,
could climb a tree,
would be ridiculous..”
