Meet the Quokka, a marsupial that is so adorable and happy looking that humans want to take photos (aka quokka selfies) with them. The Quokka is native to a small corner of southwestern Australia and is no threat to humans. Once plentiful in numbers, the friendly creatures are on the vulnerable list of threatened species due to non-native foxes and dingos and deforestation reducing their habitat.
Let’s hope that quokka selfies help raise awareness of conservation efforts for these smiley, cute animals!
