Every surviving population of long-nosed bandicoot is worth celebrating. But the tiny community at North Head, in Sydney Harbour National Park, is particularly special. The species has suffered huge losses in the region and is already extinct from places where it was once abundant. Attacks by foxes and domestic dogs and cats, and being hit by cars, are threatening their survival. This isolated population is monitored and managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the North Head long-nosed bandicoot Recovery Team. But it’s a small group of animals, and genetic analysis is urgently needed to ensure it doesn’t become in-bred. Your donation will support this vital work.
