Use of motion-activated remote cameras to detect the endangered spotted-tailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus): results from a pilot study

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A survey of the spotted-tailed quoll (Dasyurus maculatus) was conducted in the Watagan Mountains of New South Wales using baited remote cameras. Nine individuals were detected, of which seven occurred at meat-baited sites and two at sites with a general mammal bait. This confirms the expectation that a meat-based bait increases the ability to detect this species using remote cameras.
