- Endangered marsupial released on the south coast to assist with long-term conservation efforts
- Animals from a successful captive breeding program
A total of 69 dibblers have been reintroduced into bushland on the State's south coast as part of efforts to strengthen populations to assist with the long-term recovery of the endangered species.
Successful release of the small carnivorous marsupials was due to a partnership between the Perth Zoo and the Parks and Wildlife team under the new Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.
