There is no one better suited to investigate a vanishing Australian marsupial than Dr. Judith Rees, who, for more than two decades, has been studying the southern bandicoot. Her new book, "The Vanishing Australian Bandicoot: Do We Have a Future?" (Princeton University Press, 2018), looks at the current status of the enigmatic marsupial and makes recommendations for conservation.
Southern bandicoots are Critically Endangered, as are many other Australian mammals.
Rees believes that, "invasive species and habitat destruction are the main drivers of the bandicoot's decline.
