The critically endangered smoky mouse have been found for the first time alive in Kosciuszko National Park. 

The critically endangered species discovered last week in the area by the national parks service during rehabilitation work.

Three individuals, two males and one female were found together earlier this month at Happy Jacks as part of an annual survey for the endangered Mountain Pygmy Possum.

Gabriel Wilks, NPWS Environmental Officer said  they know there are more in the area, but they haven't had any records of live smoky mice before this discovery.

“In the 1990s we found three mice that had been killed by a feral cat and Smoky Mouse fur in a Quoll scat.

“It’s such as thrill to see these three thriving individuals turn up in the middle of rehabilitation works.
