Matschie's Tree Kangaroo Month

To celebrate the completion of their new exhibit in the Australasia building, the Zoo has deemed April as Matschie's Tree Kangaroo Month! The Zoo's two female tree kangaroos, LaRoo and her daughter Holly, are now well acclimated to their naturalistic enclosure, and are ready for visitors.

Throughout the month of April, we will feature tree kangaroo Keeper Talks in the Australasia building each Wed. and Sat. at 2pm, and docents will be stationed at the exhibit to answer questions about this highly endangered species each Fri. and Sat. from 11:30am - 12 noon.
