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.
