A new breed of marsupials could be coming to Australia’s shores.
Kangaroos, a marsupial that lives in the northern Australian bush, are becoming increasingly popular with backpackers.
They are known for their distinctive white coats and for being an easy pick for backpackers with their distinctive fur, which is made of a thick layer of wool.
The animals are so popular they have become the world’s second most popular pet, behind cats.
“They’re very popular and so we wanted to try to give them a new lease on life, to try and help them adapt to the environment and be more mobile,” says Katherine Poulton, who founded the company Zoology Tours in 2013.
Ms Poulson, from Brisbane, said her company was hoping to bring Kangaroos to Australia in 2019.
While the species of kangaroose has been spotted in Australia for generations, there has been little research into how it might be introduced to Australia.
It has been speculated Kangarooses could be introduced as pets in order to help them cope with bushfires, but Ms Poulston said that was not true.
She said the Kangaroose is one of the world s most important animals because of its ability to hunt.
“They are the biggest predator in the world and they can go out and hunt about 20,000 to 30,000 animals a year, so there is a lot of activity,” she said.
However, while it is believed that Kangarooms are capable of surviving in the bush, they are often found alone.
Some of the most popular Kangaroosing are found in the north-west of Queensland, and in Victoria.
When they are not hunting, Kangarootes are active around the home.
They spend their days feeding and nursing, and are sometimes seen in groups of 10 or more.
And the kangarees’ fur is extremely soft.
Despite the fact that they are considered a vulnerable species, Kangaroo Adventures are confident that they have the right genes to help Kangarooes thrive in Australia.
“The first thing that we want to do with Kangaroomes is to ensure that they can be reintroduced into the environment,” Ms Poultons said.
“And to do that, we want them to be as well adapted to their habitat as possible.”
The company is planning to bring a Kangaroo Adventure tour to the Kimberley next year, with Ms Poltons hopes that this will help Kangaroo arrivals gain access to areas they would normally only visit.
