Hello down there!

Woodland Park Zoo is home to endangered Matschie’s tree kangaroos, native to the cloud forests of Papua New Guinea. From the trees, tree kangaroos can leap 60 feet to the ground without getting hurt. Don’t try this at home!

You can help protect tree kangaroos and their tree-top homes by looking for PNG YUS coffee, now back in stock at Caffe Vita thanks to a partnership with Woodland Park Zoo’s Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program. The conservation coffee supports eco-friendly livelihoods for the landowners that share tree ‘roo forests.
