About this Wallaby...

The Banded Hare Wallaby is a wonderful little creature that is a herbivore. It is nocturnal, and lives with its family/is quite social. This species lives in the woodlands and in thick bushes, preferably the Acacia, for its dependable shelter. It eats various sorts of grasses & fruit. There may be competition/shortage of food, where they have to fight for something to eat. This is the time when male wallabies may show aggression to be able to feed itself and its family. Sadly, human environments have been chasing them out of the the main island, only to introduce them to more predators such as feral cats. (animalin)

These creatures are innocent and need help!

The endangerment affects us

Since there's less food for them, they start eating more of other plants- until there is no more of them. The Wallaby helps pollination and the varieties of plants to thrive in Australia. Since they have predators, such as the Tasmanian Devil, that makes them suffer as well as a result of less wallabies to hunt. (edublogs)
