The Eco Preservation Society isn't forcing one to take extreme steps, but rather encouraging each of us to take a minumum of one eco friendly step toward becoming more sustainable. If most of us take one step then as a complete, we could make a substantial difference.

IR Monitoring Mt PerryWildlife Queensland’s Quoll Seekers Network recently completed a three-month infra-red (IR) camera monitoring project looking for spotted-tailed quoll at Mt Perry in the Flinders Peak region, South-East Queensland.

The project was run as a complementary component of Wildlife Queensland’s quoll detection dog work funded through Logan City Council, and involved 10 IR cameras monitoring 24-hour per day between 18 March and 1 June 2020, clocking up a total 17,760 hours of survey effort.

Whilst spotted-tailed quolls were not discovered on any of the IR cameras, the survey site was found to hold healthy populations of lace monitors and brush-tail phascogale.

Other wildlife observed on the cameras included echidnas, brushtail possums, various macropods and bird species. An array of feral animals were also spotted (wild dogs, foxes, pigs and feral cattle).

In total, 29 individual species were observed on the cameras:

  • 9 bird species
  • 10 pest animal species
  • 1 reptile species
  • IR Monitoring Mt Perry9 native mammals
    • 3 macropod species
    • 2 possum species
    • 1 dasyurid
    • 1 monotreme
    • 2 native rat species

Our Quoll Seekers were glad to observe the brush-tailed phascogale at numerous camera locations across the site. These are not well known by the general public and not often observed. They are a carnivorous marsupial, a close relative of quolls.

Stay tuned for further updates about Wildlife Queensland’s latest round of quoll detection dog surveys!
