Possums and Cuscuses: Phalangeridae - Conservation Status

considered black population risk

Two species in this family are considered Endangered and at risk of going extinct in the wild. These are the black-spotted cuscus and the Telefomin cuscus. The population of black-spotted cuscuses is declining because of habitat loss and continued hunting. Little is known about the Telefomin cuscus. Two other species are considered Vulnerable, facing a high risk of extinction, and half a dozen others are of concern to conservationists, but too little is known about them to make an accurate population evaluation.
