Zoos SA
Yellow-footed Rock-wallaby

The Yellow-footed Rock-Wallaby (Petrogale xanthopus xanthopus) is threatened by habitat and the impact of introduced foxes and goats. In 1996 Zoos SA contributed to a partnership that reintroduced a population of Yellow-footed Rock-wallabies into Aroona Sanctuary in the Flinders Ranges. Zoos SA has maintained its support through regular monitoring and feral animal control at the sanctuary.

Our project partners include Alinta Energy and Ecoknowledge.
