Threatened Species Day fact sheet
About the fact sheet
Australia is home to four species of quolls. Most parts of Australia were once inhabited by at least one quoll species, and quolls were among the first native animals to be described by European scientists. All quoll species have declined in numbers since European settlement due to habitat loss and modification across the land, and introduced predators such as foxes.
