Both joeys are from the wild, having lost contact with their mothers due to natural circumstances (possibly a rejection).
During their time in care with Margit they will spend many months learning how to climb (inside and outside). They will also be taught which foods are safe to eat (even some spaghetti as a snack) and how to handle disputes with other tree kangaroos. At this age the joeys love to explore the furniture and wrestle with teddy bears. Preparing tree kangaroo joeys for the wild is a very long process, however Margit is committed to giving these 2 joeys the best chance possible of survival. As a pioneer in lumholtz tree kangaroo rescues, she's managed to hand raise and release many tree kangaroos in the past. Her property in north Queensland, backs onto local rainforest where some of her previous tree roo rescues will often return to pay her a visit. Although tree kangaroo joeys are high maintenance and have a penchant for breaking many household items as they learn, Margit wouldn't have it any other way.
