Bennett's and Lumholtz's tree-kangaroos are the 2 species found in Australia.
Two species of tree-kangaroo are found only in Australia--Bennett's tree-kangaroo and Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo. Both species are found only in Far North Queensland. Lumholtz's tree-kangaroo is the more easily seen species, being found at various locations throughout the Atherton Tablelands. Bennett's tree-kangaroo occurs in more remote areas from around Cooktown in the north to the Daintree River in the south.
10 of the worlds 12 species of tree-kangaroo are found in Papua New Guinea. There are three main groups working in this region.
TKMG members Jim and Jean Thomas are working in the Torricelli Mountains of Papua New Guinea on several species of endangered Tree Kangaroos. Please check out their website (https://www.tenkile.com/) for further information and links to videos about the work being done by Tenkile Conservation Alliance.
Another project that is working to protect tree-kangaroos in the Huon Peninsula of Papua New Guinea is run by the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington, USA. Check out their website (https://www.zoo.org/tkcp) for further information about the work being done by the Tree-kangaroo Conservation Program-Woodland Park Zoo.
