This project trialled the reintroduction of 28 southern brown bandicoots (eastern subspecies) Isoodon obesulus obesulus and 60 eastern quolls Dasyurus viverrinus to Booderee National Park between 2016 and 2019. Careful monitoring allowed adaptive management of threats as they emerged and new ecological insights that will benefit the planning of future reintroduction programs.
