We continue to work "behind thE scenes" with other zoological organizations. Like many wildlife species, kangaroos are in a precarious situation in their native Australia; Some rare species continue to decrease in number due to habitat loss, predation by introduced species such as foxes, and competition from introduced fast-breeding herbivore species like rabbits. Millions of kangaroos are killed by humans. No animal population is guaranteed a future. Natural climate disasters, like earthquakes and hurricanes, can strike anywhere in the world; The worldwide population of our human species continues to increase irresponsibly while our natural resources are dwindling; This leads to increased poaching of critically endangered species.
Establishing breeding populations of as many species as possible in captive collections or protected naturalized habitats, in different areas of the world, will help to increase the chances of survival for those species. Therefore, we have sent our animals to other zoos and animal parks around the world. While we have missed every animal that left our Center, we hope that each animal will become an important contributing member of another collection. Our priority here at our Center had always been to provide the best animal husbandry for captive species and to assist other facilities in improving care of captive marsupials. Updated 9-25-2014
