With only 2,000 individuals left in the wild, Goodfellow’s tree-kangaroos are extremely rare. So when a female at an Australian zoo welcomed a joey, all eyes were on her pouch. After a six-month wait, the baby finally peeked out. And the miraculous moment was caught on camera.
Healesville Sanctuary is a zoo located in Victoria, Australia. The facility specializes in breeding the country’s native species and is home to a range of creatures including kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes and wombats.
However, some of the animals at Healesville Sanctuary are less well known. For instance, the zoo actively breeds the endangered helmeted honeyeater. The bird is so rare that you can only find it in the wild in the state of Victoria.
