PARKS Victoria is implementing a Pest Con-
trol and Monitoring Program to protect the
Southern Brown Bandicoot Isoodon obesulus
obesulus within a number of reserves within
The Southern Brown Bandicoot Protection
program was created as a requirement by the
former Linking Melbourne Authority (LMA)
as part of the Peninsula Link freeway develop-
ment, which was later transitioned across to
VicRoads in 2015.
Parks Victoria as the Land Manager will be
launching the Southern Brown Bandicoot Pro -
tection program across a number of reserves
along the Bass Coast and Southern Gippsland.
An action plan has been developed for the
next 10 years detailing a range of strategies to
protect and improve habitat condition to sup-
port populations at Wonthaggi Heathlands Na-
ture Conservation Reserve, Kilcunda-Harmers
Haven Coastal Reserve and Adams Creek Na-
ture Conservation Reserve.
The Southern Brown Bandicoot is a ground-
dwelling marsupial with a grey-brown coat and
a long tapering snout.
They play an important role in the ecosystem
by turning over soil which helps increase the
rate of leaf litter decomposition and nutrient
So with declining numbers it will have a cas-
cading effect on plant diversity, and species
composition in the Southern Gippsland re-
Parks Victoria Area Chief Ranger South
Gippsland and Bass Gerard Delaney said that
one of the major threats to the Southern Brown
Bandicoot is predation by pest animals such as
“We will be engaging with the local community
to discuss the Southern Brown Bandicoot pro-
gram as it is rolled out over the coming months
due to the expansion of pest control activities
needing to be undertaken at these Reserves,”
Mr Delaney said.
The Southern Brown Bandicoot Protection
Program will assist Parks Victoria in under-
standing and enhancing the population within
these Reserves by reducing the major threat of
predation by pest animals.
“We envisage this project will generate sub-
sequent benefits for the community and as
the project progresses we are seeking to work
closer with neighbouring landowners and farm-
ers to further reduce the number of Red Foxes
“Additionally, it will also hope to improve the
habitat of other significant species such as the
Hooded Plover,” Mr Delaney said.
The Southern Brown Bandicoot is in trouble with declining numbers.
Save our Bandicoot
What made you choose Archie?
WE JUST like the breed. We had seen a few
people with them and we liked their tempera-
ment. They love kids and family.
What are some of his good points?
There are so many. He likes to be a good
companion, he likes to go everywhere with you
and he’ll try anything. He loves playing with
He loves a ball. He loves running on the
beach. When it’s low tide he loves the water
but not when the waves are there.
He’s an inside dog so when he has a snack,
instead of going in the garden he buries it in
Even though we do have heaps of garden, he
still buries it in the couch.
He never likes to go too far and he never
touches other people’s dog toys. He just likes
his own toys.
Does he have any bad points?
He’s a bit stubborn. If he doesn’t want to go
he’ll just sit there and you can’t get him back
from the beach. He needs training.
If we’re using the hose he attacks the hose.
Then he finds something new. He didn’t like
gardening gloves for a while. He’s only one
