The Kangaroo Island dunnart is a small carnivorous native marsupial that is listed nationally as Endangered and is restricted to Kangaroo Island. Some of the key aims of this project are: • to understand how the Kangaroo Island dunnart will respond to broad scale feral cat control • to determine how best to monitor the species • to fill knowledge gaps about the ecology, habitat preferences, distribution and abundance of the species.
