Reintroductions of native animals usually take place in remote landscapes for conservation aims; however, in this study, we work with quenda that were translocated into remnant vegetation in Craigie Bushland, an urban reserve located approximately 20 km north of Perth, Western Australia. We wanted to understand how reintroducing this digging mammal to banksia woodland habitat in the reserve could alter it.
