Rewilding Australia’s Plan – Securing the Future of the Eastern Quoll

EQ black and brown


With assistance from the Tasmanian Government, the Open Kora Fund and the NSW National Parks Association, Rewilding Australia has begun working with Tasmania’s Devils@Cradle to expand captive breeding facilities for eastern quolls – a species now extinct on mainland Australia and potentially in decline in Tasmania. The additional breeding facilities will help increase the captive population of eastern quolls and will help support proposals to reintroduce the species to the wild on mainland Australia. We’ll also be helping to expand eastern quoll facilities at Tasmania’s Trowunna Wildlife Park in 2017 and need your help. Please consider making a tax deductible donation. The quolls thank you!

From 2019, Rewilding Australia will focus on undertaking an eastern quoll reintroduction to suitable islands within the former range of the species. Research will begin in 2017 on identifying islands within the former range of the eastern quoll with suitable habitat, low densities or an absence of feral predators and suitable fire and invasive species management regimes that would allow an eastern quoll population to persist.
