Dozens of threatened Australian species are back from the brink. But many are reliant on protection and could not survive in the wild. True safety is harder.
UNSW scientists have created a 40-square-kilometre sanctuary for native Australian animals in the Sturt National Park that is completely free of feral animals such as rabbits, foxes and cats.
Introduced predators such as foxes and cats are twice as deadly as native predators to Australia's unique native animals, a new study by UNSW researchers has found.
