Help create a safe home for the Brush-tailed rock-wallaby

 

With your help we can create a safe home for Queensland’s Brush-tailed rock-wallabies and help to move them off the threatened species list. 

               

Just 70 kilometres south-west of Brisbane, you’ll find the rock-wallaby’s home—the scenic Little Liverpool Range, a biodiversity rich section of the Great Dividing Range.

This is Aroona, a sustainably managed cattle station donated to Queensland Trust for Nature (QTFN) in 2015 by a local family. Its sprawling 2,000 hectares sit nestled against the quietly majestic Little Liverpool Range.

Aroona is one of the few remaining places it can call home anymore. The rock-wallaby is classified as vulnerable under state and commonwealth legislation and is recognised internationally as a species under threat.

Its brushy tail is now a very rare sight.

In the early 20th century, fur hunters went after rock-wallabies for their beautiful coats. Today, their modern predators are not humans but introduced species. Wild dogs, foxes, and feral pigs degrade their habitats, eat their food, and kill them. These threats are compounded by landscape fragmentation, exotic plant invasion, and climate change.

Today, it is estimated that only a few thousand of these small, playful creatures exist in Queensland. That’s why Aroona is so important.

At QTFN, we are working with our supporters and the local community to ensure that Aroona is a safe haven for Brush-tailed rock-wallabies for generations to come.
However, this work requires the continued, generous support of you and others who recognise the importance of protecting our precious species.                

We need your help to raise $20,000 by June 30 to create a safe home for Queensland’s rock-wallaby at Aroona for generations to come.

Time is critical. Extinction is forever. It is essential that we don’t lose momentum. 

It is critical that we continue to manage introduced predators that threaten our efforts to create a safe home for the rock-wallaby.
