We’re so excited to share the first photos of our eastern quoll joeys with you!
With the help of our supporters, WWF-Australia and our partners were able to release 20 eastern quolls to Booderee National Park from Tasmania. The rewilding project has been a huge success, with these young little quolls now roaming around the area independently of their mothers.
Check out the first photos of these eastern quoll babies.
The team at Booderee National Park has kept a close eye on the offspring of three female eastern quolls that successfully bred in the park.
These juvenile quolls have been observed climbing trees, hunting for spiders and insects, and exploring their environment together.
Seeing the joeys leave the pouch has been a positive step for the rewilding project and contributes significantly to the knowledge of what is required to continue reintroducing them back into the wild on the mainland.
While there’s still a long way to go before re-establishing a wild population, the pilot project has achieved some important milestones. A second relocation will be planned soon to help boost the population further.
