Abstract

Mulgaras (Dasycercus cristicauda and D. blythi) are protected by state and commonwealth environmental statutes; as a consequence, land developers and mining companies have an obligation to avoid, mitigate or minimise impacts on these species when they occur in their area of operation (i.e. to implement trapping and translocation programs). Here we assess the effectiveness of searching and trapping programs for mulgaras in four case studies and provide management recommendations to improve outcomes for these species.
