Wallabies are fairly common and naturally occurring across Australia and New Guinea, and many species have been introduced to other regions like New Zealand. They are threatened by both humans and feral animals like dogs, but classifying wallabies as overarchingly vulnerable or not is challenging due to the wide range of known and differing species.
