Islands for Quolls

Islands for Quolls

In partnership with researchers from the University of Tasmania, we aim to identify suitable islands that could be used to provide additional insurance populations for both eastern and spotted-tailed quolls. Historical distribution of quolls, interactions with other island species and current habitat suitability will be investigated. Islands for Quolls will not only provide additional insurance populations for quolls, but will improve the overall trajectory of these species and provide populations of quolls that can be used or mainland or Tasmanian reintroductions if ever required.
