Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program

Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program

The Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program (TKCP) works to protect the threatened Matschie’s tree kangaroo in ways that also meet the needs of the local communities who share the forests of Papua New Guinea (PNG) with these elusive marsupials.  The TKCP has established a 180,000+ acre conservation area on the Huon Peninsula of Papua New Guinea through community-based action that includes scientific research, education and conservation outreach. The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, WA leads this effort to save these unique animals.
