Protecting Tiwi mammals

Mon, 27 Jul 2020

The Tiwi Islands are home to threatened mammals like the brush-tailed rabbit-rat. The Tiwi Land Rangers are working with scientists from Charles Darwin University on research to monitor mammals while they utilise traditional cool burn strategies, which reduce bushfires and maintain habitat that helps mammals avoid cats.

This Threatened Species Recovery Hub project is a collaboration between the Tiwi Land rangers, Tiwi Land Council and Charles Darwin University. It is supported by the Australian Government’s National Science Program.
