Eastern quolls to be reintroduced to the wild on Australian mainland

30 years after it last roamed freely on the mainland, one of Australia’s most endearing native mammals will be reintroduced to the wild. Over the next three years, 100 eastern quolls will be relocated from captive breeding sites, Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary and Devils@Cradle in Tasmania to a national park on the New South Wales coast. The Project is a collaborative between Rewilding Australia, Parks Australia, Threatened Species Recovery Hub researchers at the Australian National University, Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council, WWF-Australia and Shoalhaven Landcare.
