Collecting Biodiversity Information

Several Southern Water Skinks sunned themselves whilst we cooled down.Biodiverstiy information is being collected via targeted surveys, as well as from general observations.

  • Landholders are audio-recording frog calls from their farm dams, as per the Conducting a fauna audio survey information sheet.
    This information will add to our understanding of the distribution and abundance of frog species in the project areas.
  • Wetlands Habitat Assessment Tool and Woodlands Habitat Assessment Tool are being used to describe native habitat at each site.
  • Lists of all identifiable flora and fauna are made during each visit to a site.
  • Two Reconyx Hyperfire motion-activated trail cameras are being rotated through the project sites to build a picture of the types of fauna using local farm dam and wetland habitat. Image results will be posted on http://www.strathbogieranges.org.au and on the page links, below.
