Location: Papua New Guinea
This species of tree kangaroo has been recorded from lowland and mid-montane tropical forests. They are found in both primary and degraded forests. The Grizzled Tree Kangaroo is threatened by heavy hunting for food by local people, and by habitat loss and degradation through conversion of forest to small-scale agricultural use, and large-scale oil palm plantations.
