Tree kangaroos are abundant in the ‘mabi’ type rainforest that compliments the treehouses (mabi being the local aboriginal name for tree kangaroo).
A case study be Dr John Kanowski of Griffith University concluded that the Retreat rainforest supported a population of at least 5 adult females, their offspring and a smaller number of males’. It is not unusual for a female to be nurturing 2 young so it is feasible to expect the total population to be between 14 and 18.
Additional information about Tree Kangaroo's on the Atherton Tableland's is available on the Tree Kangaroo and Mammal Group website.
