Doria’s Tree Kangaroo Dendrolagus dorianus

Vulnerable

Location: Papua New Guinea

The Doria’s Tree Kangaroo is restricted to mossy mid to upper primary montane tropical forest. This species is threatened by heavy hunting for food with dogs by local people. Increased hunting pressure is probably due to improved road access associated with the Papua New Guinea LNG project and other developments in parts of their highland range. Future threats include habitat loss and degradation. Listed as Vulnerable based on a projected population decline of more than 30% within the next three generations (i.e., 30 years), due to declines in habitat, and unsustainable levels of exploitation.

Doria’s Tree #Kangaroos are tree-dwelling #marsupials unique and endemic to #PapuaNewGuinea, endangered by #palmoil #deforestation #hunting and #mining. Support them at the supermarket with a brand #Boycott4Wildlife

There are now logging concessions over almost 75% of the species inferred range. There has presumably been significant habitat disturbance and reduction in habitat quality as a result of logging
