About This Project

The desert rat-kangaroo is one of Australia's most mysterious small marsupials. Although we currently lack confirmation of the mammal's presence, recent promising sightings gives hope for its continued existence in Australia's remote Sturt Stony Desert. We will investigate these sightings using camera trapping, map the animals' distribution and habitat, and build the first habitat model for this species. If the animal is still out there, our team represents the best chance for its rediscovery.

Blast off!
