Help us name our Brush-tailed Bettong joey duo!

Numbers of Brush-tailed Bettong, also known as Woylie, are decreasing rapidly in the wild and the species is now critically endangered. The safe arrival of the two male joeys, offspring of Truffles and Zoos SA ambassador Rambo, is such wonderful news for Brush-tailed Bettong and highlights the importance of protecting our native species from extinction. Zoos SA is proud to be part of the Marna Banggara rewilding project, which has seen locally-extinct species returned to a fenced 170,000 hectare wildlife reserve in the Yorke Peninsula.

Brush-tailed Bettongs play an essential role in keeping their habitats sustainable by digging up to four tonnes of dirt and leaf litter per year, spreading the seeds of native plants around the area in the process.

Inspired by their species and the Marna Bangarra project, help us chose the paw-fect name for the two joeys from the shortlist below and have the chance to win a double pass to Adelaide Zoo’s Koala Encounter.
