The Conservation and Wildlife Research Trust has begun a partnership with Phillip Island Nature Parks to help support their recently translocated eastern barred bandicoot population.
This partnership was facilitated through the Threatened Species Prospectus. This partnership also builds on the great work already underway to establish a self-sustaining eastern barred bandicoot population on the island.
The Conservation and Wildlife Research Trust joins Zoos Victoria, The Ian Potter Foundation, Phillip Island Nature Parks and Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning who are all supporting this fantastic project that is boosting the trajectory of the eastern barred bandicoot. The eastern barred bandicoot is one of 20 mammals targeted for recovery under the Threatened Species Strategy.
