Brush-tailed Bettong

Brush-tailed Bettongs (also known as woylies) once ranged across much of mainland South Australia before becoming restricted to three populations in south-west Western Australia in the 1970s. After an extensive feral animal baiting program, the populations increased, with many re-introductions occurring in South Australia and New South Wales. Zoos SA has been involved in captive breeding of Brush-tailed Bettongs for reintroduction and helped investigate wildlife health concerns for the species. Zoos SA is represented on the Brush-tailed Bettong State Recovery Team.

Our project partners include Department of Environment and Conservation (Western Australia), Murdoch University, Perth Zoo, and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.
