This project was funded by the Australian Government National Heritage Trust, the Tropical Savanna CRC, Meat and Livestock Australia, Australian Government's Drought Regional Initiative, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and Queensland Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation. Several people helped with the collection of data and we particularly thank Adam Tassicker and Sari Mangru (James Cook University), Alaric Fisher and Damian Milne (NT NRETas.) and John Bushell (DEEDI). The grazing experiment is supported by the Lyons family at Wambiana Station. All trapping was conducted under the Queensland Government Scientific Purposes Permit number WITK04645707. The production and writing of this manuscript was supported by funding from the CSIRO Building Resilient Australian Biodiversity Assets Theme. Justin Perry and Gen Perkins (CSIRO) provided valuable comments on preliminary drafts, as did Teresa Eyre (QDERM) and an anonymous reviewer.
