A new o-fence-ive to save lots of bilbies.

Queensland Gov Announcement

 

The future of rabbit-eared bandicoot conservation at south-west Queensland’s Currawinya national park has been secured, with plans to substantially upgrade the predator-proof fence to guard the threatened marsupials from wild  cats and other predators. These little creatures have no defence against predatory cats and are totally unprepared to live side by side.

Tasmanian Devil,

Populations of Tasmanian Devils have drastically reduced because a facial cancer decimates populations.

The Devil is a top predator on the Island. So it held in check, feral cats. That is until facial tumors decimated Devil population and feral cats assumed the position of top predator.
