During the early 20th century hunters slaughtered this wallaby, killing it for fur and as a farm pest, but Taronga’s breeding program means the 21st century will be brighter for the species.

Working in partnerships with other zoos and organisations, Taronga is actively participating in breeding programs for Australian native animals, such as the Brush-Tailed Rock Wallaby of which there are only estimated to be 15-30,000 left in the wild.
