The Australian Wildlife Conservancy will reintroduce ten species of native animals into national parks in New South Wales in bid to halt their extinction. On the list are Australian favourites including the bilby, numbat, brush-tailed bettong, western barred bandicoot and bridled nailtail wallaby.The mammals play an important role in local ecosystem but their survival was threatened by non-native animals that have gone feral. It is hoped that the reintroduction of native animals will improve the experience of NSW national parks, especially for wildlife-loving visitors. Read more: abc.net.au
