Help monitor Hobart's bandicoots


With fears eastern barred bandicoot numbers in Tasmania are in decline it has never been more important to monitor the health of local populations.

If you live in Hobart you can help by joining our Backyard Bandicoots program as a Bandicoot Buddy, and start recording your own observations of eastern barred bandicoots in your neighbourhood and even your own garden!

The growth in citizen science in Australia is making a huge contribution to our understanding of threatened species, and that includes our own eastern barred bandicoots.

To start:

The more people who join our Backyard Bandicoots program and actively monitor and record bandicoots in their own neighbourhood the better our monitoring results.
