Do quenda benefit bushland regeneration after fire?

Does the quenda, a small native digging mammal, help assist regeneration of native plants? This is a question that is especially relevant to the southwest of Australia, the native range of quenda, which features a Mediterranean climate that is becoming more fire-prone under climate change. Watch the video to hear from Leonie Valentine from The University of Western Australia and Katinka Ruthrof from Western Australia Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) and Kings Park Science about this project and the potential effects on the tuart, a local eucalypt species and kangaroo paw.
