“Motherhood has a very humanising effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials”

In a sunburnt country at the top end of Oz,
There is a desperate mission to save our native indigenous Quolls…
Chased away from their remote scrubland bush homes.
These tiny Aussie battlers used to fossick, run around and roam,
Foraging in remote woodlands, scrub and deep under ground
The girls are desperately seeking males, but sadly none can be found!
Their family, friends and suitors have all long gone
This is unacceptable, sad and so wrong!
Lively, attractive small bush marsupial animals,
Brutally wiped out by those newly introduced cannibals.
Of all God’s creatures, great and small,
Most people want to save a Lion or a Tiger, but what about a tiny Quoll?
How could you not love these little guys?
Cute pink pointy nose, little round ears, big bright pleading eyes.
When I found out about these little dudes, I just wanted to cry…
Look at this adorable little face; she has so much to say
Can you help us Aussies to save them; there must be some way?
A sad story about mans cruelty and inhumanity
Changing the natural habitat for their control and vanity.
European settlers many years ago
Imported foreign animals, deciding that these friendly, outgoing local Quoll’s should go.
Just like the Tassie Tigers these little guys will soon be extinct
Can we all help to bring our small Quolls back from the brink?
Another little eco engineer on God’s earth was made;
Why introduce foreign animals that just want to kill, destroy and invade?
Too soon, these little critters will only be found in myths and legends
I hope and pray that we could try to stop this tragedy from happening.

Where’s Quolly? ~ Hey Momma
TOAD ON THE MENU?
WELCOMING THE TROOPS HOME
“Get to know our incredible quolls while you can. Australia’s four quoll species face an uncertain future due to ongoing threats from habitat destruction, feral cats and foxes, cane toads, and disease. Saving these special animals from extinction will be a long and difficult task, but the prognosis is not all bleak” ~ QuollSA
FAST AND FURIOUS
Perhaps, the only documentary you will ever see about Quolls.
“The Wunambal Gaambera traditional landowners have lived and hunted here for thousands of years and call it Uunguu – their living home. Everything in Uunguu (all the plants, animals and culture) is precious and must be looked after properly under traditional Wanjina and Wunggurr Law”
