About the recovery plan
Bridled nailtail wallabies were apparently common west of the Great Divide at the time of European settlement. The range of the species has dramatically declined during the last one hundred years, with the only known significant population of the species occurring on Taunton National Park (Scientific) (149°11'E, 23°34'S) located near Dingo in central Queensland. A small, translocated population has been established on Idalia National Park (144°72'E, 24°70'S) and Avocet Nature Refuge (148°10'E, 23°50'S) and other translocations are currently underway.
This national Recovery Plan for Onychogalea fraenata, details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
