Fifteen tiny quoll pouch-young have been born to three female eastern quolls from a pioneer group of 20 animals released into Booderee National Park. In a big win for the reintroduction project, these are the first eastern quolls known to be born in the wild on the Australian mainland for more than 50 years. The pilot project released the quolls into the park in March 2018, sourcing the animals from two captive breeding sanctuaries in Tasmania.
