Abstract

Once widespread across western and southern Australia, wild populations of the western barred bandicoot (Perameles bougainville) are currently only found on Bernier and Dorre Islands, Shark Bay, Western Australia. A debilitating skin disease is hindering conservation efforts to prevent the extinction of this endangered Australian marsupial.
