The first footage of our endangered tree kangaroo joey fully outside of its mother's pouch. Seen here at eight months old. The joey and its mother, Elanna, are living in a quiet, behind-the-scenes exhibit at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington.
Woodland Park Zoo is home to the Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program that is working to protect the endangered tree kangaroo and help maintain the unique biodiversity of its native Papua New Guinea in balance with the culture and needs of human communities.
