The Strathbogie Forest is an island habitat for forest-dependent fauna. Though it faces a number of challenges (feral species, fragmentation, climate change) it represents critical habitat for numerous species in the Strathbogie Ranges.
Our 2017 pilot project (Strathbogie Forest Citizen Science project 2016CVA064) confirmed the presence of several threatened and iconic species in the forest using contemporary survey techniques (eg transect spotlighting, camera trapping), but identified substantial knowledge gaps, as well as survey technique limitations.
This Bogies and Beyond project with the GBCMA will utilize our ‘skilled-up’ citizen scientists to expand the survey coverage and learn ever more about this important forest area.
