The behaviour, diet, and ecology of greater bilbies in a semi-wild breeding sanctuary

My research focuses on conserving the Greater bilby by deepening our understanding on several aspects of their ecology. Currently, I am investigating the behaviour, movement, breeding success, and survival of bilbies reintroduced into a semi-wild breeding sanctuary. I am also exploring spatiotemporal patterns of habitat and diet selection in bilbies, and their trophic roles within ecosystems.
