Endangered Orphaned Baby Tree Kangaroo Saved in World First

In a world first for conservation, Adelaide Zoo Keepers and Veterinarians saved the life of an orphaned Goodfellow’s Tree Kangaroo through utilising a surrogate wallaby mother – a technique never attempted before with a tree kangaroo. Today, the joey will make its public debut as his amazing story features in the July/August edition of Australian Geographic, available on newsstands Friday 3 July.
