Help Project Numbat fund research and predator-control programs to protect WA's faunal emblem.

DONATE NOW

The numbat was once found across southern Australia, but there are now fewer than 1000 in the wild and it is restricted to isolated pockets of south-western Western Australia, and predator-free sanctuaries in NSW and South Australia.

Australia has lost the majority of its small mammals, and it would be a tragedy to lose the iconic numbat, which is WA's faunal emblem.

The numbat's greatest threats are feral cats and foxes. Donate now to help Project Numbat fund research and predator-control programs and monitor the species' progress.
