"SPOT" THE BANDICOOT IS ENCOURAGING STUDENTS TO ENTER TRANSDEV'S COLOURING IN COMPETITION IN SUPPORT OF THE LONG-NOSED BANDICOOT STUDY

Media Release by Transdev Sydney

When Transdev Sydney learned of an important study to track the inner west population of the endangered long-nosed bandicoot they were eager to do their bit.

As operators of the Sydney Light Rail network, Transdev is proudly committed to protecting the local environment, especially along the light rail network.

The study, funded by Transport for NSW in partnership with researchers and local councils, is focused on a small colony of Long-nosed bandicoots, an endangered species under the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995, discovered around the suburbs of Dulwich Hill, Lewisham and Petersham.

To help spread the message to local schools and to light rail customers. Transdev Sydney has enlisted the help of Spot, the friendly long-nosed bandicoot.

Spot is encouraging children to enter the Transdev colouring competition and see if they can “spot” the eight hidden bandicoots in the picture.

Two lucky winners will receive a $150 book voucher for Berkelouws Bookshop and the school with the highest number of entries will receive a $500 book voucher. Entries close on 6 May.

A brochure with information about the study and how to get involved is available on board the light rail vehicles and online at www.transdevsydney.com.au/
