A thousand hectors of land purchased through the Sunshine Coast Council’s Environment Levy Program is now home to a vulnerable species.
The long-nosed potoroo has been caught on camera at a number of locations along the Sunshine Coast.
Sunshine Coast Council’s Jenny McKay says the discovery is significant for the region.
Jenny McKay: “These are vulnerable species registered both with the state and also with the Australian Legislative Assembly. This is so exciting because it’s over – it’s decades since we’ve had a sighting on the Sunshine Coast and we also believe in south-east Queensland.”
