Native animals on Australia's Remote Islands

Our Culture

Added by National Environmental Research Program Northern Australia Hub

Description Twenty-nine mammal species have become extinct since European settlement - more than 10% of Australia’s endemic mammal fauna.
Native mammals have been in broad scale decline across northern Australia, however the mammal populations on Bathurst Island near Darwin in the Northern Territory appear to be in relatively good condition. In this video Stuart Young and Willie Rioli from the Tiwi Land Rangers talk about the mammal populations on the Tiwi Islands.
The Tiwi Islands are 80 km north of Darwin. They consist of 11 islands in total with Melville and Bathurst islands being the two largest.
