Bunyip's bandicoots an endangered species

The future of the Southern Brown bandicoot population in Australia is under threat, but the shy marsupials are popping up in and around Bunyip, Longwarry and Kooweerup, according to the Pakenham Gazette.

The Bunyip Landcare group hosted an information night last week for residents interested in protecting the Southern Brown bandicoot population in East Gippsland. 

More than 100 residents, who came to the information session, discussed their concerns about cats and foxes killing off bandicoots, and shared stories of the native animals.
