In order to conserve bandicoots in urban areas, we need to know more about how they use the urban landscape, including bushland reserves, corridors, and front and back gardens.
To do this, we will attach GPS trackers to quendas so we can track their movement over time. We will also set up motion-sensor cameras in bushland and in people’s gardens, to capture visits by quendas (and other animals like cats and foxes).
We are also very interested to find out how often quendas use resident’s front and back yards, and what makes a “quenda-friendly garden”. If you see quendas in your garden, or in bushland nearby, please let us know!
