Tree Kangaroo Smiling - Australian Endangered Animals - WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

Forget Paris! Chews Kofi to take out the ‘World’s Most Popular Marsupial Muncher’ for Australia!
We all know its rude to chew with your mouth open, but this doesn’t apply for Kofi or his tree-kangaroo counterparts!
In the lead up to World Tree Kangaroo Day (Tuesday 21 May), WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s adorable Goodfellows Tree Kangaroo, Kofi is competing in a global competition that judges crunching, munching, and chewing loudly. Yes, you heard that correctly!
Kofi who is well known for his charming personality and love of treats is partaking in this unique social media competition – competing for Australia, against his tree-dwelling marsupial counterparts cared for at zoos across the globe.
The Darling Harbour attraction is calling on Australians to get behind Kofi by liking and sharing his entry video which can be found on WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s social channels - Facebook @wildlifesydneyzoo | Instagram @wildlifesydneyzoo | TikTok @wildlifesydneyzoo
The competition runs from Wednesday 15 May until Saturday 18 May with prizes awarded in three categories: ‘Most Likes’, ‘Most Views’ and ‘Judge’s Choice’ to be announced via AZA SAFE: Tree Kangaroos of Papua New Guinea on Facebook and Instagram on Monday 20 May.
