Bandicoots in my Backyard 

Victoria Nature Festival

Our Southern Brown Bandicoots are important to our environment and they are in trouble, here's how you can help!

We invite you to train up as a member of our bandicoot-spotting brigade.  

Join us online to explore what makes these marsupials so marvellous, how they keep our environment healthy, and what you can do to protect them. 

A young brunette female guide is talking to a group of people including several children. She is wearing a grey long sleeve shirt with beige pants and matching akubra hat with decorative pins attached to it. She is holding fact sheets in one hand and has the other hand raised, in mid conversation with the group. In the background is beautiful green bushland and green trees against the blue sky.

Charlotte Fletcher, Southern Brown Bandicoot Outreach Officer, and Eilish Roberts, Learning Facilitator will give you the low-down on all things bandicoot.

They'll help you practice identifying bandicoots, and provide clues on diggings, scats, and tracks so you can tell where bandicoots have been.

Once you know what to look for, they'll share some simple things you can do to help protect this endangered species. 

This event is presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria
