About this episode

Eastern Barred Bandicoots, considered extinct in the wild on mainland Australia, have been given another chance at survival on fox-free islands like Phillip Island. Threatened Species Officer Thomas Nixon tells the story of how these shy marsupials ended up on Phillip Island, and how we are protecting them into the future. Ranger Meagan gets up close and personal with some of our Eastern Barred Bandicoots in a late-night monitoring expedition with our volunteers.
