Wallabies – Sussex, UK

Originally from Tasmania, these mini-kangaroos were brought to England to be featured in private menageries. They managed to sneak off and create their own lives in the wild, lucky enough to have found a climate similar enough to their natural habitat.

Unlike other feral animals, they don’t pose any immediate dangers and are proudly touted as “environmentally-friendly lawn mowers” – so as long as they don’t overgraze, they’re safe. But with a gestation period of only a month, and the ability to get pregnant again 6 months later, will their population stay small enough to avoid overstaying their welcome?

Some of the organizations featured in the "Gone Wild" are non-profits or charities needing donations to continue doing their valuable and essential work helping animals. This includes sterilization, medical care, food and finding them forever homes whenever possible. To get involved, please click on How to Help.
