Territory Talk, Wednesday 6 September

Kris Haliday talks with Charles Darwin University research fellow Dr Brett Murphy about Butler’s Dunart a tiny carnivorous marsupial, so rare it has only been seen eight times in the past 37 years.

The flesh-eating critter was first discovered by Aussie naturalist Harry Butler in the Kimberley in 1965.

Effectively monitoring the endangered meat lover has been significantly helped with research undertaken by CDU PhD candidate Larissa Potter.

Dr Brett Murphy is supervising Ms Potter’s research and undertaking research to help Northern Australia’s threatened mammals for the Threatened Species Recovery Hub of the National Environmental Science Programme. 

“Unless we can monitor species efficiently, we don’t know if the conservation actions we are undertaking are paying off for our vulnerable wildlife species”, Dr Murphy said. 

“This new monitoring method is much cheaper and more efficient than traditional monitoring methods and will greatly improve our ability to monitor and care for this species”.
