Stony Rises Rewilding Project

Carbon Landscapes is partnering with Odonata, Natural Glenelg Trust and the Stony Rises Land Management Network to ‘rewild’ over 400 hectares of threatened Stony Rise Woodland. We are working to understand how best to use this amazing habitat to support potential endangered fauna species such as the Spotted-tailed Quoll, Koala and Long-nosed Potoroo.

Project Facts

Habitat managed
400 hectares
Potential species
Spotted-Tailed Quoll, Long-nosed Potoroo, Koala

Background

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.

Stony Rises Rewilding Project Details

Carbon Landscapes is working in partnership with OdonataNature 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.
