2008. Spot-tailed Quoll (Dasyurus maculatus) surveys were undertaken in the Strathbogie State Forest and forested eastern escarpment of the Ranges. The survey used remote cameras set up in suitable habitat, particularly at possible latrine sites. Quolls establish ‘latrines’ where  they regularly defecate and scent mark. These are often visited several times during night time foraging activities.

These beautiful and fascinating native carnivores are on the edge of extinction on mainland Australia. Sadly, no evidence of the species was found in the Strathbogie Forest.

Though there are occasional anecdotal records of Spot-tailed Quolls from parts of the Strathbogies, and whilst they most likely occurred here in historic times, I’m not aware of any confirmed records (in the VBA) from the Strathbogie Ranges. Victorian Flora & Fauna Action Statement No. 15 Spot-tailed Quoll.

2010-11. Growling Grass Frog surveys were undertaken at a variety of wetland sites across the Ranges. Survey on-going at the time of writing. More information: Rowhan Marshall, DSE, Benalla 5761 1611.
