Meet Holly! Just in time for Mother's Day, Roger Williams Park Zoo is proud to announce the birth of a Matschie's Tree Kangaroo. This is the first tree roo birth at the Zoo in over 20 years, and one of only three that were born in captivity in the U.S. last year. Tree roos are an endangered species, and are part of RWP Zoo's Species Survival Program -- a cooperative breeding program through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) that aims to rehabilitate endangered and threatened species populations.
