Rufous Bettong

$

These marsupials are crucial to Australian ecosystems because they are natural engineers. But the species has suffered serious declines and faced several recent threats that have seen its distribution and populations drastically reduced, the most significant being the 2019–20 bushfires. Aussie Ark aims to keep this species from extinction before the last remnant populations disappear. Individuals will be protected inside large captive enclosures placed across all Aussie Ark’s sanctuaries. This project will see the rewilding of rufous bettongs throughout NSW, creating a robust insurance population for the endangered species. Its goal is to keep the species surviving in the wild.
