T is for the Tree Kangaroo! 🐨

Specifically, the golden-mantled tree kangaroo, which was discovered in 2005.  This tree kangaroo is critically endangered, due to overhunting and habitat loss. Since 2006, local communities in its native range of New Guinea have come together to protect the remaining populations from hunting. Currently there are only 500 golden-mantled tree kangaroos left in the wild.
