A fascinating marsupial species found in the eastern and southeastern parts of Australia. They are known for their impressive jumping abilities, with the ability to leap up to 8 m (25 ft) in a single bound! Unfortunately, the eastern gray kangaroo faces threats to its conservation status due to habitat loss, fragmentation, hunting, and road collisions.
Efforts to protect and conserve this species are underway, with initiatives focused on habitat restoration and wildlife corridors to help connect fragmented populations. Additionally, the eastern gray kangaroo is a protected species in Australia, with hunting being strictly regulated and monitored. It is important that we continue to prioritize the conservation of this incredible species to ensure that future generations can enjoy the sight of these iconic animals in the wild.
