Bandicoot Recovery Action Group

Ashleigh Coombs - Monday, July 02, 2018


Bandicoot detectives to help collect information about where bandicoots live.

Join the Bandicoot Recovery Action Group on a field trip to Deep Creek Conservation Park to set up motion-sensor cameras.

12 July, from 10am. Lunch provided.

This work will help the environment department’s fire management team improve its understanding of bandicoot distribution in parks where prescribed burns are planned, so that only small areas of habitat are burnt at any one time.

Contact Normanville Natural Resource Centre on 8558 3644 or South Coast Environment Centre on 8552 9423 to get involved.
