David’s Echymipera Echymipera davidi

Endangered

Location: Papua New Guinea

The David’s Echymipera also known as the David’s Spiny Bandicoot has been recorded from areas of degraded forest and regrowth habitats (Flannery 1995).

The threats to David’s Echymipera are poorly known, but the island has a high human population and much of the area is cultivated. Listed as Endangered from the little information available. This species has a very small extent of occurrence (545 km2) and area of occupancy; it is essentially a single location and there is almost certainly a continuing decline in the extent and quality of habitat due to the high human population and extensive agricultural activities.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail industry and influence big palm oil to stop cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join me and stand up for the animals with your art and your supermarket choices!
