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 #Boycott4WildlifeTweet
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.
