THE Mallee Cliffs National Park, about 30km north-east of Mildura, will soon become home to at least 10 mammal species that have been extinct in the region for more than a century.
The park is managed under a historic partnership between the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and Australian Wildlife Conservancy (AWC), which will oversee the establishment of a 8000-hectare feral predator-free project area in the park.
Mallee Cliffs covers almost 58,000 hectares of varying habitats in which seven species are listed as endangered, including mallee fowl and the western pygmy-possum.
