Supplementary feeding and post-fire monitoring is being implemented by Saving our Species, National Parks and Wildlife Service, Department of Primary Industries and the University of New England. Thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes have been delivered to the wallabies in the Capertee and Wolgan region, Yengo National Park, Kangaroo Valley, Jenolan and Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, helping to ensure the survival of the endangered iconic species during current conditions.
