continue to work "behind the scenes" with other zoological organizations worldwide in
the crucial work of providing kangaroos and other species for
exhibition and conservation programs. 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.
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 many animals to other
zoos and animal parks around the world. While we miss every animal that
leaves our Center, we hope that each animal will become an
important contributing member of another collection.
Our priority here at our Center has always been to
provide the best animal husbandry for captive species and to
assist other facilities in improving care of captive marsupials.
Kangaroo Conservation Center was established
over 30 years ago in Georgia, USA as a wildlife preserve
focusing on conservation of specific species
and improving captive husbandry. All Photos taken at
