Q is for Quolls and “Under the Quandong Tree”




Do you know that Quolls used to live in Banyule?

We often think about the animals who we are living alongside. But what about those whom we have already displaced? What is our responsibility to them? The good news is that we can make a difference to the habitat of the animals who are still living here and hopefully invite back some that we have previously displaced. Check out the Banyule gardens for wildlife program for some inspiration regarding plant selection when cresting a space to invite a specific animal into. Here is an interesting article that addresses a possible solution for living with local Indigenous animals.

If you are you interested in learning about Indigenous LORE? A wonderful book to read particularly for women is ‘Under the Quandong Tree’ by Wirradjirri woman Minmia.
