The Spotted-tailed Quoll is Australia’s largest mainland marsupial predator being roughly the size of a large cat. It feeds on small mammals, frogs and reptiles. It prefers habitat that has dense understory with high amounts of logs and rocky escarpments, the latter which it uses for breeding. The Quoll was once commonly seen in the Stony Rises and surrounding district, today records are restricted to a few sightings in the nearby Otway Ranges.
Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with Odonata, Nature Glenelg Trust and Stony Rises Land Management Network, and planning to eradicate introduced predators, establish predator-proof fencing and protecting and enhancing Stony Rise Woodland, listed as vulnerable in Victoria, at our 1000 acre property to the Otway Ranges, in the heart of the Stony Rises. We will be ‘rewilding’ this habitat through reintroducing fauna species such as the Spotted-tailed Quoll, Long-nosed Potoroo and Koala and will be working with our partners to measure long-term success.
