Brace yourselves. These little predators are making a comeback to mainland Australia with a little help from WWF. Eastern quolls were once part of the Australian landscape for millions of years. They've been extinct on mainland Australia for over 50 years and can now only be found in Tasmania. We're working to breed the eastern quoll and bring them back to mainland Australia.
