    @Katja Schulz: Katja....Well, my first attempt didn't work out as planned, I thought "My Insights" would have been included at the end of the aticle. Instead, I had to add my insights to the article as a reply/response. I apologize and hhope it dosn't lessen the impact of the article. If you could let me know what you think (is the article appropriate for the EOL community and is "My Insight" helpful, needed, etc. While my written insights appear in corect form (paragraphs) after I pasted it in the section, after posting, it came out as one long paragraph in the reply/response section with no known way to edit it (when I attempted to edit it, it looked perfectly fine in edit mod . I do apologize for that, as it is cumbersome to read.

    @Katja Schulz: Thanks Katja, I have an article under "Scoop It" written by EarthJustice, "7 Ways Congress is Trying to Destroy the ESA" with my insights as an Endangered Species Recovery Biologist. That will be my first contribution. I would greatly appreciate any feedback re my "insights". Thanks

    @Celeste South: Hi Celeste, you can add text directly to EOL species pages (rather than to the comments feed). Simply go to the Detail tab, and look for the add an article button. Since you are a full curator, your contributions will automatically be classified as trusted content. Let me know if you need help with anything.

    Endangered Species Week, Eastern Quoll "Eastern Quolls To Be Finally Reintroduced To Mainland Australia After 50 Years Of Extinction", The Guardian The eastern quoll (Dasyurus viverrinus), also known as the eastern native cat, is a medium-sized carnivorous dasyurid marsupial native to Australia. They are now considered extinct on the mainland, but remain widespread and even locally common in Tasmania. It is one of six extant species of quolls. The eastern quoll was formerly found across much of southeastern mainland Australia, from the eastern coasts of South Australia, through most of Victoria, to the central coast of New South Wales. It died out on the continent around 1963, but remains widespread in Tasmania, and is also found today on Bruny Island, to which it is probably not native. Within Tasmania, eastern quolls inhabit rainforest, heathland, alpine areas, and scrub below 1,500 m (4,900 ft). However, they prefer dry grassland and forest mosaics, bounded by agricultural land, particularly where pasture grubs are common. Conservation The main threats to the eastern quoll are competition and predation from feral cats and illegal poisoning and trapping. The lack of foxes and dingoes in Tasmania is believed[by whom?] to have contributed to the survival of the species. The last mainland eastern quoll specimen was collected as roadkill in Sydney's Nielsen Park, Vaucluse on 31 January 1963. The National Parks and Wildlife service reported numerous unconfirmed sightings until 1999 (the year of the report), and the species was reported sighted as recently as 2006. Specimens collected in 2005 and 2008 west of Melbourne, Victoria, are likely connected with a nearby Conservation and Research Centre, either as direct escapees, or the descendants of escapees from that facility. Reintroduction to the Mainland Overseen by Parks Victoria, Australian National University, Rewilding Australia and Wreck Bay Aboriginal Community Council, this project will rehome 40 eastern quolls into this national park next year. “We want to get a top order predator back into the park, so we can restore the ecosystem. The quolls eat spiders, cockroaches, that sort of thing, and may also take out rabbits, which is a good thing in terms of pests,” said head of Rewilding Australia Rob Brewster to the Guardian. “We want them to breed and disperse. We’d hope that having them back will be a big community engagement tool. We can involve communities in better protection of vegetation because they’ll have this species in the vicinity." Rewilding Australia wants to take animal conservation to the next level by actively rehousing species into their natural habitat, such as the Tasmanian devil and the dingo. With the promotion of environmental education, Rewilding Australia hopes that nearby communities will learn about and take better care of their surrounding wildlife. However, it’s unlikely that the eastern quolls’ numbers will grow to their previously established figures without an imposed cull of their feral predators. Seeking to tackle this threat, the Australian Government are holding a threatened species summit in July to further discuss the reintroduction and sustainability of wildlife, such as the eastern quoll. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_quoll http://www.iflscience.com/…/eastern-quolls-be-finally-reint… Photo 1, 2 - Wiki Photo 3 - Deb Talan
