A survey of the mammal fauna in the coastal forests and adjacent farmland in the Seven Mile Beach/Comerong Island area, near Nowra on the New South Wales south coast, recorded 22 native and 7 introduced species. lnsectivorous bats (10 species) comprised 45Y. of the native species recorded. Previous records and reports of a further nine native and one introduced species are documented, including several which are now extinct in the area. Conservation of the surviving native mammal fauna is dependent on the protection and management of the remaining remnants of the original vegetation.
