The Draft National Recovery Plan for the Mainland Eastern Barred Bandicoot (Perameles gunnii (Victorian subspecies)) has been prepared by the Victorian Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, and is proposed for adoption under the EPBC Act.
The original wild population of the listed Endangered Eastern Barred Bandicoot (Mainland) is presumed extinct, and now survives in three reintroduced populations and two introduced island populations in Victoria. This is a revised recovery plan which builds on previous plans for the subspecies and details its distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions to ensure its long-term survival.
