Tree Kangaroos at risk: Facts About These Declining Species

Fourteen species of tree kangaroos inhabit the forests of Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Australia. They weigh up to 32 pounds and measure about 30 inches, not including their 16-to-34-inch tails.

Like in many places around the world, deforestation impacts wildlife habitat. It’s the same where tree kangaroos live. Many tree kangaroo species already exist in low numbers and most populations are decreasing. WWF works worldwide to prevent deforestation and illegal logging.

    +H,. Highlander for your information there are more animals than humans in Australia. But some species are becoming extinct. The introduction of European stock is the problem in lots of cases. The tree kangaroo would be protected here. Don't know about PNG or Indonesia. In West Australia where I live the Western Grey has increased in numbers since European settlement. Growing corn is the cause of this. For the vegetarians, farmers protect their crops by hiring shooters to cull a permitted numbers of kangaroos. Please don't think by having a vegetarian diet you save animals. You don't. Kind regards my friend.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

A Handful of Leaves

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
