The future of Marna Banggara, the unique rewilding project that returned endangered brush-tailed bettongs to southern Yorke Peninsula, is now open for community consultation.
The Northern and Yorke Landscape Board is calling for input to help shape the next five years of the long-term project.
Marna Banggara’s newly-appointed Community Engagement Officer Rebecca O’Leary said there were some exciting ideas for the community to consider and new suggestions are also welcome.
“The next five years of the project is about building on past achievements, such as the reintroduction of brush-tailed bettongs, the coordinated fox baiting and collaboration with the Narungga community,” she said.
“We’re keen for the Yorke Peninsula community to help shape Marna Banggara’s evolution, which has the potential to bring back more locally-extinct native animals, employ a Narungga project officer, expand intensive fox and feral cat control and increase barn owl numbers through nest boxes on private properties.”
