The mammals


The Wild Deserts project aims to bring back seven native mammal species to the NSW corner country, using large fenced exclosures and a range of innovative predator control and research techniques, in Sturt National Park. 

Feral predators and herbivores such as cats, foxes and rabbits have been eradicated from two large exclosures, and the Wild Deserts team are starting to reintroduce the mammals that were once widespread in NSW, but have not been seen for over a century.
