Australia | Endangered marsupials, thought wiped out by bushfires, found in Queensland NPs

One of Australia's rarest mammals, known as a "suicidal reproducer", has been found in a national park south of Gladstone, after fears the population had been wiped out by bushfires.

Scientists from the Queensland University of Technology located 21 of the endangered marsupials, the silver-headed antechinus (Antechinus argentus), in Bulburin National Park, 60 kilometres south-west of Miriam Vale, during field work in May and June this year.
