Mankarr (called greater bilby in English) is a type of bandicoot that lives in Australian deserts. Looking after the mankarr is important because the other bandicoots and animals of this size are gone. Their continued survival is important to both the Traditional Owners of these countries and Australians in general. As the Martu Determination sits in the heart of the remaining bilby distribution, Martu people are very important for the future of this species.
This project has developed an approach to monitoring the bilby. The framework builds on previous work rangers have carried out looking at where mankarr occur on Martu country. This guide gives details about the monitoring framework.
