Description / Abstract: The Sir Edward Pellew Group of islands, in the south-west of the Gulf of Carpentaria, is an important area for mammal conservation in the NT. Five mammal species listed (or proposed for listing) as threatened in the NT are recorded from the island group; brush-tailed tree-rat, northern phascogale, canefield rat, Carpentarian antechinus and northern quoll. These species were recorded on the islands in early fauna surveys in 1966-67 and 1988, but surveys in 2003 recorded only two of the species, in very small numbers. This collaborative study aimed to survey the islands for four of the five threatened species to confirm their continued presence and to determine the feasibility of monitoring programs for the species on the islands. - Summary
