Australia's smallest tree kangaroo needs your help. We are building habitat in tropical Australia where over 90% of lush rainforest has been cleared here for agriculture. This habitat is critical for the threatened Lumholtz Tree-kangaroo that lives only in this region. We will plant 2,000 trees to create a wildlife corridor between two national parks that enable the endangered Lumholtz Tree-kangaroo to travel between these areas to find new habitat, food and mating opportuntities.
The Atherton Tableland is a fertile plateau located in Far North Queensland that was once covered in tropical rainforest. Clearing for agriculture began just over 100 years ago and this has removed 90% of the rainforest. The rainforest now only exists in isolated pockets dotted across the landscape. Habitat loss is the biggest threat for the Lumholtz Tree-kangaroo. They are isolated in fragments and are at risk from dog attacks and cars as they try to move between the islands of rainforest
We will plant 2,000 rainforest trees to connect two forest fragments and help the Tree Kangaroo move between these areas. Rainforest will be planted to connect Lake Barrine Park Nature Refuge and Gadgarra National Park. This project is creating a way for the Tree Kangaroo to cross the landscape safely to find new habitat and food by connecting two habitat areas.
Planting wildlife corridors has been proven as effective in supporting wildlife to move between areas of habitat. We know that this works and will help the threatened Lumholtz Tree-kangaroo to find new habitat and food. Isolated populations of this beautiful creature will be free to move across a landscape at less risk of cars and domestic dog attacks. This will contribute to a larger and healthier population and help secure the long term future of the Lumholtz Tree - Kangaroo
