Quoll Breeding Program

Captive breeding plays a vital role in fostering knowledge and the protection of future populations of endangered species and Featherdale Wildlife Park is a major contributor to these aims.  The Quoll breeding program has been so successful that the Park now has a Management role in the National Program to assist these important animals.  In conjunction with students from Monash University in Victoria, our aim is to sustain a captive population to assist with this endangered species.  Featherdale Quolls were DNA tested to ensure the limited gene pool was utilised efficiently.  From this testing, animals were exchanged amongst program members to create viable, genetically diverse pairs.
