The entire colony of brush-tailed rock-wallabies in Kangaroo Valley has been saved after bushfires devastated the region.
Emergency food drops helped the endangered marsupial survive in the wake of their habitat being destroyed.
State Environment Minister Matt Kean said the life-saving food included carrots and sweet potatoes, as part of the Saving our Species program.
"Since the Currowan fire burnt endangered brush-tailed rock-wallaby habitat near Kangaroo Valley in early January, National Parks and Wildlife Service rangers trekked into the region every week to provide food for the hungry wallabies and ensure their survival," Mr Kean said.
"After the ferocious fires, it was a welcome relief to hear monitoring cameras and the GPS collars confirmed all the wallabies survived the blaze. Rangers trapped several wallabies to assess their health and removed GPS tracking collars.
"It was great to hear the wallabies were in good health, with one wallaby identified as a joey that was not previously known.
"This level of intervention is vital to help maintain these colonies and allow them to recover. At this stage feeding is expected to continue until natural food resources and water become available in the landscape during post fire recovery."
Thousands of kilograms of carrots and sweet potatoes were delivered to wallabies in the Capertee and Wolgan region, Yengo National Park, Kangaroo Valley, Jenolan and Oxley Wild Rivers National Park, in the immediate aftermath of the bushfires helping to ensure the survival of the endangered iconic species.
The state government's Saving our Species program aims to secure the future of threatened plants and animals, such as the Brush-tailed Rock Wallaby in the wild.
