It is hard to conserve a species like the tiny and elusive Kangaroo Island Dunnart if you don’t know where it is. Without accurate and reliable detection methods it is also difficult to know if your conservation actions are working.
Dr Rosie Hohnen from Charles Darwin University talks about research which has discovered the best way to detect the dunnart and increased our knowledge about where it is and its habitat preferences.
The project was a collaboration between the Threatened Species Recovery Hub, Charles Darwin University, Natural Resources KangarooIsland and The Government of South Australia - Department for Environment and Water. It received support from the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Program.
