Location: Papua New Guinea

Ifolas are gentle forest-dwelling marsupials of the tree kangaroo genus Dendrolagus #PapuaNewGuinea. Endangered #Indonesian #palmoil companies #destruction. Say no to palm oil in the shops, support them @Tenkile with a #Boycott4Wildlife

The Ifola is a species of Tree Kangaroo that lives in a restricted area of mossy mid- to upper primary montane tropical forest. After giving birth, they are suspected to have an 18 month dependency period before the female is ready to breed again. Listed as Endangered because they are suspected to have undergone at least a 50% population reduction in the last three generations (i.e., 30 years) that has not ceased, due to hunting pressures and loss of habitat.

The Ifola is threatened by heavy hunting for food with dogs by local people (it has disappeared from the Schrader Range). They are also threatened by loss of habitat due to agriculture (shifting cultivation) and deforestation due to logging.
