Eastern Quolls on the move

Our Eastern Quoll pups are growing up fast, and this means that they will inevitably hit the ‘curious teenage phase’. Once independent, Eastern Quolls run from their Mums in an attempt to find their place in the world. Although Mulligans Flat’s fence provides a safe haven for our native wildlife, young quolls like to rebel, and occasionally will attempt to clamber up, over, and out into the Canberra suburbs.

 

If you see one of these rebels without a cause strutting their flawless spots around Gungahlin, and beyond, please contact us. We will do our best to recapture them and return them to sanctuary safety away from foxes and cats.

Ecologist Millie Sutherland Saines holds a juvenile Eastern Quoll during late night monitoring.

 

In the mean time, if you own a cat – keep them indoors, and if you own a dog – be sure to keep them on a leash when out walking.

 

Hopefully one day we’ll have these dazzling marsupials gracing our backyards, but for now it’s best they stick to home town Mulligans Flat.
