Quokka (Setonix brachyurus) Recovery Plan

Western Australian Department of Environment and Conservation, 2013

About the document

This recovery plan guides the recovery of the quokka for 10 years. The overall long-term objective of the recovery program is to at least maintain their current distribution and abundance.

A change in the status of this taxon to anything less threatened than ‘vulnerable’ is unlikely within the next 10 years. The objectives outlined in this plan are considered to be achievable through implementation over the next 10 years, and will contribute to the achievement of the overall long-term recovery objective with a view to improving the status over a longer period.
