Protecting our giant Earthworms: Beverley van Praagh


Reaching up to 3m in length, the giant Gippsland earthworm may be the world's largest of its kind. Often mistaken for a snake due to its size, this creature can only be found in a few locations in Victoria.

The worms are under serious pressure by agricultural use of their habitat so, for the last 30 years, ecologist Beverley van Praagh and her team at the Giant Earthworm Project have been working closely with the Victorian government and local farmers to find ways to ensure the survival of this fascinating species.

Help us save the bilby

This marsupial species was already under threat of extinction when recent and prolonged drought periods in Australia's already hot, dry arid regions placed it under extra pressure.

Arid Recovery in South Australia aims to boost the resilience of bilby populations through breeding and research programs that improve genetic diversity.

This work will help bilbies survive increasingly hot summers by providing targeted food and water at key times and will also study how bilbies recognise and avoid quolls as native predators.

It's hoped that 'quoll-smart' bilbies can eventually be taught to also be 'cat-smart'.
