Seacology protecting critical drop bear habitat in Tasmania

April 1, 2014

BERKELEY, CA, APRIL 1 – This month, Seacology launched its first ever project on Tasmania protecting critical forest habitat for the reclusive drop bear (plummetus Thylarctos), a ferocious relative of the koala known for attacking unsuspecting hikers by literally dropping down from the treetops.

In exchange for the creation of a new 200-acre drop bear forest reserve, Seacology will help protect park rangers from surprise drop bear attacks by providing safety equipment such as body armor, night vision goggles, and very pointy helmets.
