Abstract

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.
