Quokkas in the northern jarrah forest: Recovery of populations over a decade
Dundas, S.J., Fleming, P.A. and Adams, P.J. (2012) Quokkas in the northern jarrah forest: Recovery of populations over a decade. In: 22nd Combined Biological Sciences Meeting, 24 August, Perth, Western Australia.
Introduction. The quokka is a medium-sized macropod endemic to southwest WA and two islands: Rottnest and Bald. Quokkas were once ‘commonly observed’ in swamps, although few surveys were conducted to establish historical presence. Quokkas suffered a major decline in the 1930s; by the 1950s, the quokka was thought to be extinct on the mainland.
