There are most certainly quokkas left. Most of them live on Rottnest Island, while there are some smaller colonies in protected areas in southwestern Western Australia.

The populations on the mainland total nearly 2000 animals, while the best estimates for the Rottnest Island population vary between 4000 and 17000, according to the Australian Government's Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities website (see related link below).

What is special about Rottnest Island?

Arguably, the most special feature of Rottnest Island is the quokkas. Quokkas are small marsupials in the kangaroo family, stocky and squat, with shorter tails than other macropods. Rottnest Island is the only completely protected native habitat of the quokka, where they are not at threat of any predators. visitors to the slang can get quite close to these gentle, shy animals.
