Thanks to the Wild Deserts team, a locally extinct species is translocated from Western Australia and reintroduced into Sturt National Park.
After decades in the making, the plan to breed mountain pygmy-possums and reintroduce them into lowland rainforests has begun.
Environmental survey findings confirm what scientists have suspected; platypuses aren’t in Royal National Park. But plans to reintroduce the iconic species to the park later this year will change this.
UNSW Sydney scientists are leading a project to bring the iconic mammal back to Royal National Park after almost 50 years.
The locally extinct animals have been reintroduced to the NSW outback as part of a major rewilding project led by UNSW Sydney.
A beautiful seagrass is endangered in parts of NSW, but a team of “underwater gardeners” led by a UNSW marine ecologist is working to stem its decline.
Small native mammals eat more plant seeds than had been realised, and their loss to predators such as foxes and feral cats has likely caused significant changes to vegetation in outback Australia.
