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.

Australia has four species of quoll: the spotted-tailed, the northern, eastern and western quoll. The spotted-tailed quoll and the smaller northern quoll are both found in Queensland.  The spotted-tailed quoll is mainland Australia’s largest native marsupial carnivore

About the presenters

Matt Cecil, Projects Manager, Wildlife Queensland

Matt CecilMatt Cecil is the Projects Manager at Wildlife Queensland. His career in wildlife began in 2001 while holidaying in Tasmania: He visited a local wildlife park, desperate to see a Tasmanian devil, and landed a job at the park as an animal keeper, starting the very next week. Eight years, one zoology degree and several animal bite marks later, he returned to Brisbane to defrost.

Matt joined the Wildlife Queensland team in 2014 managing projects under the organisation’s focussed species networks; PlatypusWatch, Queensland Glider Network, Richmond Birdwing Conservation network and the Quoll Seekers Network.

Quoll Seekers Network is determined to document evidence of spotted-tailed quoll beyond their stronghold of the border ranges and granite belt. This is a native animal that carries the weight of extinction pressure from all corners – introduced species predatory pressure, introduced species competitive pressure, poisoning by introduced species, human persecution, road trauma and loss/modification of essential habitat. Quolls desperately need our help and the Quoll Seekers are determined to provide it.

Sean FitzGibbon PhD, Research Fellow, University of Queensland

Sean FitzgibbonSean FitzGibbon is a Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, where he completed his PhD in zoology in 2005. His research is aimed at enhancing the conservation of wildlife in fragmented landscapes, through improved ecological understanding. He has specialised in examining the behavioural ecology of many species, including quolls, using latest-technology devices such as proximity loggers, custom-made GPS units, sound recorders and micro-transmitters.
