The Tiwi Islands, a group of islands around 20 km off the coast of the Northern Territory, remain one of the only bioregions in Australia to retain its complete mammal assemblage. However, mammals still face threats on the Tiwi Islands, including feral cats, large exotic herbivores, and frequent fire. So, while the Tiwi Islands have not yet lost mammal species, their continued persistence cannot be taken for granted.
