Abstract

This study documents a range of interactions between humans and quenda (Isoodon obesulus) and brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) in urbanised Perth, Australia. These interactions are of veterinary public health significance. Findings suggest that public education is important to safeguard the health of both the marsupials and humans involved in such interactions.
