Crest-tailed mulgara have been recently reintroduced to Wild Deserts. They are a cryptic species and so traditional trapping techniques can be hard to use to estimate abundance. This project will use sites at Wild Deserts and also at wild sites in South Australia to compare camera trap detections, track plot surveys and trapping rates to examine optimal methods for monitoring the abundance of this species in the future at Wild Deserts.
