The woylie is a unique creature. Its small diggings for food can move an estimated six tonnes of dirt each year.
All that soil turnover massively transforms the bush and keeps it healthy, leading to this little animal being called an ecosystem engineer.
The woylie will be the first of an estimated 20 species to be translocated to the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia over the next two decades.
The innovative project, more than a decade in the making, has seen 150,000 hectares of land, which includes farm land and national park, turned into a semi-protected animal haven.
