The Eastern Barred Bandicoot is facing grave danger due to predation by foxes and cats and the recent catastrophic bushfires have only added to their struggles. Help us secure a brighter future for these magnificent creatures by saving their lives and restoring their habitats.

By sponsoring an Eastern Barred Bandicoot you will be directly funding the Bandicoot breeding program at our Mt Rothwell sanctuary and our growing bandicoot population at Tiverton Farm, both of which have already contributed to down-listing the species from “extinct in the wild” to “endangered”.

Your support can make all the difference in ensuring their survival and enabling them to thrive in the wild once again.
