Tree-kangaroo Roadsigns

In cooperation with the Department of Main Roads the group successfully established roadsignage in identified areas of high tree-kangaroo mortality (roadkills) across the Atherton Tableland.


Some of the locations found by the TKMG Community Survey 2000 are:

  • Curtain Fig Rd
  • Yungaburra/ Malanda Falls/ Kennedy Highway, between Upper Barron and Mt. Hypipamee NP/ Malanda-Millaa Millaa Rd
  • Tarzali area
  • and some in the Ravenshoe area

Currently there a mortality survey involving collecting detailed information from tree-kangaroo carcasses is being carried out. Data is currently being analyzed in order to learn more about "blackspots" for tree-kangaroo deaths on roads in the Atherton Tablelands.
