“Since European settlement in Australia we have seen 54 animal species become extinct with a further 18 animal species critically endangered, and 128 classified as endangered. As the world becomes more environmentally aware, I believe that we must as individuals recognise the magnificence of our natural world, and feel a sense of accountability for our actions which affect it.” – Bob Irwin

Come look for tree kangaroos
Trees for the Evelyn and Atherton Tablelands (TREAT) was started in 1982 by botanist Joan Wright and rainforest ecologist Geoff Tracey, who recognised the need for a community-based tree planting organisation to revegetate degraded lands and create corridors for wildlife on the Tablelands. TREAT has wonderful working relationships with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service – Restoration Services – at the Lake Eacham Nursery, many landholders, other landcare and community groups.
Tree Kangaroo and Mammal Group
The Tree-Kangaroo and Mammal Group (TKMG) is an incorporated community group based on the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland, Australia, made up of local residents interested in, and concerned for, the conservation of North Queensland's rich mammal fauna.
Projects and activities undertaken by the Group focus on issues pertaining to the Lumholtz's Tree-kangaroo, but also often involve other mammals.
The group was formed in 1997, and has become a strong and active group on the Tablelands. Our members are a diverse bunch of people, ranging from scientists, farmers, teachers, artists and publicans, and lots of interested others.
