AUSTRALIA’S Threatened Species Commissioner, Gregory Andrews, visited Groote in October to help plan for recovery of the brush-tailed rabbit rat and the northern hopping mouse.

The two small mammals are target species in the national Threatened Species Strategy.

Gregory said they benefit from the island being cane-toad free but they were still threatened by feral cats and wildfires.

He spoke to the ALC, rangers, Traditional Owners and the local community about how to help in the fight against extinction.
