Giant Maremma ‘guardian’ dogs protect endangered bandicoots in Australia – video | Environment

A Zoos Victoria program has adopted the trial use of Maremma dogs as ‘guardians’ of the endangered eastern barred bandicoots. The idea of the trial is that the dogs will protect the bandicoots from feral foxes and cats as they are reintroduced into the wild. The program’s coordinator, David Williams, admits it is ‘a little bit left of centre’.
