People of the forests come to the rainforests and hunt for the tree kangaroos because they are very rare. The hunters even use hunting dogs to track down the kangaroos. This hunting has lead the animals close to extinction.


The enviroment the Tree Kangaroo lives in mostly is far North Austrailia. They also live in lowlands and rainforests in Papua, New Guinea. These animals live in trees and on the ground. The people of New Guinea find these animals a good food source.
