Community wildlife and feral animal monitoring in the Tamar Valley
Do you own a lifestyle block or a farm in the West Tamar? Are you interested in knowing more about wildlife throughout the Tamar Valley and help protect our amazing native animals from feral species like cats and deer?
Be part of WildTracker - an exciting citizen science project that will identify wildlife hotspots!
This half-day workshop for landholders is an opportunity to learn some wildlife survey skills and meet other people interested in wildlife conservation. You will also discuss opportunities available for funding on-ground works on your property to benefit the Eastern Barred Bandicoot through the Australian Government's National Landcare Program (NLP).
Automatic cameras have revolutionised the way we look for wildlife. The cameras help us find all sorts of animals, including rare and threatened species like bandicoots, devils, bettongs and quolls.
