Examined characteristics affecting the success of Eastern Barred Bandicoot reintroductions, including competition from herbivores.
Type of Study:
A combination of drought and grazing pressure from kangaroos and rabbits reduced the amount of available habitat and possibly lead to population decline of Eastern Barred Bandicoots at one reintroduction site in Victoria.
Understanding the characteristics that lead to the success or failure of a reintroduction program are crucial. Continued management of eastern grey kangaroos is required to manage site conditions to maximise survival of reintroduced animals.
