Environment Minister Donna Faragher said the three female woylies would be joined by others in the coming months to form the basis of a prime population expected to breed to about 400
"The new population of woylies will be protected from the threat of feral cats and foxes within Perup Sanctuary, located east of Manjimup," Mrs Faragher said.
Threatened woylies get new life in safe bushland IN a bid to boost the species' chances of survival, the first three of up to 40 critically-endangered woylies were last night released into a new 420ha predator-free enclosure in the state's South-West.
Before being released, the woylies will undergo a laboratory assessment by wildlife veterinarians from Perth Zoo to make sure they are fit and healthy and ensure the strongest woylies are selected to establish the best insurance population of the species.
In the next four to five weeks, the Department of Environment and Conservation DEC will be trapping wild woylies in the local Perup and Kingston areas and releasing them behind the predator-proof fence.
