Bettong Joey #4!!!!
Meet joey #4!! He is just as special as each and every bettong joey born because these amazing little marsupials are critically endangered. Who could possibly want these cuties to go away forever? The answer is no one. These guys are good for everything in their habitat. Even humans that live in the same environment want bettongs to flourish once again. Their special relationship with fungi, feces, and vegetation creates a real life natural miracle grow community. Now what farmer wouldn't want his plants to grow bigger and stronger? The animals enjoy more shelter and food. The fungi benefits, the plants benefit, and so do the bettongs. Now that's a win win win situation!! Let's get these guys back in the wild!!
Of course that requires some in depth scientific studies on bacteria, parasites, population growth and decline, in situ and ex situ studies, and lots and lots of captive bred bettongs!!
