Long - Nosed Bandicoot struggling in Manly

It took 50 years before people in Dulwich Hill 'discovered' they were sharing their habitat with a rare Australian survivor, the Long-Nosed Bandicoot. (ABC)

A small, isolated population survives in Manly”, registered as endangered. It has - despite 'discovery' - been further reduced by speeding cars, cats and dogs and most of all the elimination of its habitat.
