ABC 7.30 | Rufous-hare wallaby brought back from brink of extinction

An ambitious conservation project is bringing native animals back from the brink of extinction. It is in the form of the world’s biggest cat-proof fence being built 300km outside Alice Springs. The fence will protect animals like the rufous hare-wallaby, which will become the first on a list of critically endangered species to be reintroduced to the central desert.
