Wildlife Queensland launches new guide to help save vulnerable ‘brushies’

BTRW Guide

27 January 2023

Wildlife Queensland’s Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby Conservation Network (BTRWCN) has launched a new revegetation guide designed to assist landholders in protecting and recreating habitat for the brush-tailed rock-wallaby (Petrogale penicillata).

The 16-page illustrated Saving the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby: A Landholder’s Guide features stunning photography coupled with a wealth of information about this vulnerable macropod and its habitat and conservation needs and explains the actions needed to restore habitat quality and connectivity, reduce the risks from pest animals and plants, and minimise fire impacts for the species.

“Providing land managers and property owners with valuable tips on what to do to protect, recreate and enhance habitat for the brush-tailed rock-wallaby will benefit this species as well as other threatened native fauna,” says Wildlife Queensland project officer Paul Revie.

The guide was developed as part of a larger Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby Conservation Network project to improve conservation outcomes for brush-tailed rock-wallabies, funded by the Australian Government’s Environment Restoration Fund — Threatened Species Strategy Action Plan — Priority Species Grants.

Saving the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby: A Landholder’s Guide is freely available in print on request from communications@wildlife.org.au or online as a PDF download or flipbook.
