The receiver of this International Award is SGP grantee partner Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program that has implemented SGP funded project PNG/SGP/OP5/Y3/STAR/BD/13/16 

Tree Kangaroo Conservation Programis working with local landowners in PNG to manage PNG’s first conservation area encompassing over 75,000 hectares of pristine forest and tree
Kangaroo habitat. The tree kangaroo is endemic to the region and has important cultural significance for the locals also serving as a flagship species for the project.
Given that locals own and control over 95% of the land in PNG, long term habitat protection required conservation awareness and commitment in
Local communities. TKCP developed a community based strategy aimed to improve service delivery and livelihoods and the locals are actively
Involved in fieldwork including ongoing scientific research, land mapping, community education and conservation outreach activities.
