Numbats into the wild
Perth Zoo-born Numbats are being prepared for the wild and fitted with radio collars to track their movements.
A principal research scientist at the Department of Parks And Wildlife, Dr Tony Friend says:
‘It’s very important to be able to monitor the animals, firstly to make sure they survive.’
‘We can also follow up the females because they’ll be having babies in January and we can catch the animals then and check their pouches and make sure we count the number of young.’
