NEW Conservation Conversations

Our latest conservation conversations webinar discusses the important role of Guardian Dogs in the protection of the Eastern Barred Bandicoots.

After many years of training, Guardian Dogs are the latest heroes for the Eastern Barred Bandicoot, working to protect the bandicoots from their biggest threat - foxes. If successful, this trial could be a game changer for conservation, offering an opportunity to return Eastern Barred Bandicoots to the wild on the mainland.
