Four key native species were carefully selected for reintroduction to southern Yorke Peninsula. They are:
- Brush-tailed Bettong
- Southern Brown Bandicoot
- Red-tailed Phascogale
- Western Quoll
The native Barn Owl is also part of the equation, with the plan to augment the current population.
Each species plays an important role in the rewilding process. Both the Brush-tailed Bettong and Southern Brown Bandicoot are known as soil engineers. They are excellent diggers that improve soil quality and create opportunities for native plants to germinate.
The Red-tailed Phascogale and Western Quoll are predators. Western Quolls perform the important role of the top order predator, while the Red-tailed Phascogale is a generalist small predator that will help regulate mice numbers in place of cats and foxes.
