Description

Latin Name: Macropus parma Conservation Status: Near threatened
Distribution: Parts of Australia Weight: 3 to 6 kg
 
The Parma Wallaby was thought to be extinct, until a surviving population was found in 1965. They were then bred in captivity with hopes of reintroducing them into their natural habitat. Two years later, more were found living in remote parts of Australia. Since then, the population of Parma Wallaby's are thought to be increasing.
