Vegetation corridor made for the love of bandicoots

Urrbrae Agricultural High School students including Monty Coombe, left, and Amy Walsh helped Sturt Upper Reaches Landcare Group president Danny Rohrlach plant shrubs that will become part of a bandicoot corridor connecting Mark Oliphant and Belair national parks.

Local volunteers hope sparks will fly between two isolated Hills bandicoot populations when they’re connected by a vegetation corridor that has been years in the making.
Private land being re-vegetated in Upper Sturt is the last piece in the puzzle of a corridor to connect bandicoot populations in Mark Oliphant Park with their cousins at Belair National Park.
