A small to medium-sized macropod found in the eastern parts of Australia. Unlike other wallabies, the swamp wallaby is an excellent swimmer and can submerge itself in water for up to 40 seconds to avoid predators. Although they have a reputation for being solitary animals, they are known to congregate in small groups during the breeding season, displaying impressive acrobatics as they compete for mates.
It is not currently considered endangered; however, it is threatened by habitat loss due to urbanization, agriculture, and land clearing. Conservation efforts include protecting and restoring their habitats, along with education and awareness programs for the public to reduce human impact on their populations.
