This Christmas. Support our unique wildlife, by simply giving...uniquely.
The Bennett Tree Kangaroo is undeniably unique. And, cute for that matter. Only found in the Daintree, the Bennett Tree Kangaroo is the largest marsupial that prefers to spend its time high up in the trees. Weighing up to 14kg they are able to jump 9 meters down to another branch and have even been known to drop as far as 18 meters to the ground without injury.
Like many animals that are endemic to the Daintree, the Bennett Tree Kangaroo is considered threatened due to a number of factors, such as the impact of a changing climate. We need the resources to provide an understanding to establish appropriate management plans to ensure wildlife in the area, including the Bennett Tree Kangaroo, has a solid future.
This Christmas, we ask you to consider giving an equally unique gift in the form of a donation to Earthwatch. For every donation of $20 or more to the 2012 Christmas Appeal we will send a personalised card to your nominated recipient so they know just how unique and special your gift to them is.
By giving a donation you are ensuring we have the resources to support the science for tomorrow’s future.
Donate today by phoning Earthwatch Australia on 03 9016 7590 or online, here.
Thank you for your support and we wish you and your family a joyful festive season.
