French Island Beetles

2016 invertebrate survey by Zoos Victoria.

Eastern Barred Bandicoots

The December 2016 issue of Warron: The Eastern Barred Bandicoot Newsletter.

In September 2015 Zoos Victoria put together an infographic (click to read) based on a survey that was sent to the French Island community regarding the potential release of Eastern Barred Bandicoots on the island. FOFI also responded to the survey. The community expressed a number of concerns, and now some actions have been put together with the aim of addressing those concerns. If you would like more information on the survey, the proposed actions or any other aspect of the bandicoot project, please contact Dr Amy Coetsee, Threatened Species Project Officer, Zoos Victoria. This email address is being protected from spambots.
