Gecko Talks is on Quolls – 28th July in Currumbin RSL

July 8 @ 10:00 am - 8:30 pm

This month’s Gecko Talks is on Quolls. 28th July in Currumbin RSL

The spotted-tailed Quoll is the largest marsupial carnivore on the Australian mainland.   A ferocious predator, able to take down prey 5 times times its own size, the spotted-tailed quoll is seriously threatened by extinction.

There are less than 10,000 individuals remaining, and the species has disappeared from 90 percent of its former range.

In Southern Queensland the situation is dire.   Driven from their homes by land clearing and introduced predators, killed on the roads or around chicken coops, quoll sightings have plummeted since the 1990s.

Paul Revie, an ecologist and zoologist, founded the Quoll Society of Australia to safeguard the spotted-tailed quoll in Southern Queensland.

With a team of enthusiastic volunteers, QuollSA has been mapping the last remaining populations of spotted-tailed quolls in the region.

Their upcoming projects include GPS tracking quolls and creating a safe haven for the last healthy populations.

Come and learn about quolls in our region, and how YOU CAN HEKP save this unique and feisty predator from going the way of its larger cousin, the Tasmanian Tiger.

Tickets are free, however, due to COVID-19 regulations, seating is limited, so make sure you book your ticket today at
